I saved a woman who couldn't swim from drowning. The current was so strong though that by the time I managed to get us both to shore we had been swept along the coast half a mile and she was unconscious. As soon as I was able to stand I started yelling for help and some German men sunbathing heard me and helped get her onto the grass. I thought we were both going to die because everytime I managed to get us to the surface another wave crashed over us forcing us down again and even when I managed to get to the surface there was so much surf in the air I was breathing it in.
One of the worst experiences of my life!
