I survived to a frightening and near-fatal diving accident!

Hi “Virgili“,
Fantastic adventure :eek: that fortunately ended well.(y)

I lived a similar experience in 1995 in Sardegna , club Tanka.
The boat (of +/- 20m) was waiting for all the tourists to board to go to "Isola Cavoli"

My body was covered with sand …☹️
I jumped in the water from ‘swim platform' to rinse me, when I saw the large propeller (+/- 1m in diameter) start to spin…☠️
I felt the powerful thrust of the water… it was very VERY impressive

Luckily a crew member saw me and shouted to stop the engine.…“fermare il motore“

Like you when I remember the scene I say to myself "I where very lucky'…and without any hurt
thanks for your feedback
I can testify it takes two seconds to survie (y) or not(n)
