Our boat inverted unknowingly, we were thrown into the water, darkness came before my eyes and not a single word uttered.
Husband tried to save me, but the water was pulling me away. I held my breath, so that water from the nose and mouth would not get into my stomach, even tried to paddle.
I tried desperately to get across the water,but I started to go under the barge that was anchored. My heart sank, when I saw the end near. Even in that situation, my eyes got wet in the water and I closed my eyes.
