“Just let me not die today,” I prayed.
Scuba diving isn’t a dangerous activity. However, dive with the wrong person and you can end up in trouble, like I did.
In dive training, instructors tell you to swim against the current on the way out. That way you use the current to get back to the boat.
That day, my diving buddy broke the rule. There was a strong current. He was first in the water. And he swam with the current on the way out. I had no choice but to follow his lead.
Now we were out at sea with no idea where our boat was. Worse, he was running out of air.
