I thought I am a good swimmer until I was almost drowned. This accident happened while I was traveling Australia, 2009. I went to Gold Coast, beautiful beach located near Brisbane, to swim. A cloudless sky allows the beach sparkled. The beach seemed like a gold-wave. It was a perfect day for every mankind to swim in a Gold Coast. The exotic atmosphere the beach gave also encourage me to swim. So I went to swim. Everything was perfect. I did not even know how many times had passed. Since the water in front of the coast was too shallow, I decided to go farther. I was about 25 meters away from the coast because I thought I am a good swimmer.
Suddenly, the sky changed its color. The bright-gold colored sunshine disappeared and the dark-gray color clouds came up. Moreover, raindrops fall on the surface of the ocean and it make wave angry. So, I tried to swim heading to the coast but the angry wave push me away from the coast. I swam and swam again but the distance became farther. I could not even reach my feet to the ground. So I was panicked. I thought I am going to die.
Luckily, one of Coast guards found me and saved me. I gave thanks with my full of heart to him. Because I drank too much sea water, I tried to leave the coast to drink something. In that moment, an Australia broadcasting company's interviewer came to me and ask me to answer their questions. There are many questions and I answered their question and leave. In the night time when I cooked my dinner in YHA (Youth Hostels Association) cooking room, I could see a man in a television who interview with his face frown because of the reason only I could know.
