2285So, the other day I was diving in Koh Chang. I was doing this exercise at 12 metres deep. I had to fill the mask with water and then remove it.
Something went wrong and I had a little amount of water in my mouth. I was trying to get it off but instead I got more. My mouth is full of water and I cannot breath properly any more.
I was starting to get a little panic attack. I was literally drowning at this point, in front of my diving instructor. They grabbed my vest and put the regulator back to my mouth so I can breathe a little bit.
We hit the surface. Immediately I pulled the regulator out of my mouth and I start to cough the water out. When I finished coughing and I start to breathe normally, my instructor asked me this. Im glad I can say I am.
As youll hear in his audio clip, Anton who is Finnish - speaks English very well. After his photo was taken he realised hed spelled okay differently to the usual way but I liked how hed originally done it, so kept it.
