Half-Drowned (Almost Died!)

I was swimming in my YMCA ’s pool. I was 10 and my sister was 7. We were swimming with my sister’s two friends. So one of the friends who just so happened to be taller than me piggy-backed my sister to a deeper spot in the shallow end, 4 1/2 feet, I think it was. I was worried about my sister’s friend, so I told my sister that she should get off soon. And then she did something stupid. I mean really stupid. Firstly, I was four feet tall, so I had to use a noodle to get out there in the first place. So my sister jumped on the noodle, but it couldn’t support both our weight so we sank. I could swim, but come on it’s kinda hard to swim with some one thrashing next to you. I pulled her under, and then she pulled me under. This happened over and over again until I was finally able to swim to the shallow area and my sister’s friend took her back to the shallows. It doesn’t sound that scary, but it was when you think about it. For me, my worst way to die is by drowning or hanging.
