I was about 13 years old.
My friend and I decided to go to the creek. It had rained the whole week before, so when we got there we were delighted to see it fast and furious. So we brought with us a two man raft and I and my friend took it for a ride.
It was alot of fun, but as we went around the corner we saw that the tunnels that we had to go through were covered by trees that had fallen down from the storm the day before. My friend jumped out and disappeared in the water. I was knocked out and was taken under the trees and into water. Holding on to a twig under water with the current in my face, I all of a sudden was starring straight at myself. My face was bloated and pale, and my eyes more blue than ever. I looked completely shocked and terrified to be looking at myself. Next thing I know, (and I'm not sure how) I was on top of those fallen down trees that were blocking the tunnel. I was soaked and scared.
It's been 17 years, but I keep this memory close because I know that I have experienced something amazing.
