The cheerleader dragged me down with her when she fell in. I knew how to swim, but the current was too hard for me to fight back. And when I finally got the strength to, some caught onto my foot or ankle and didn't let me get up. I was able to pull myself up to my mouth and took a deep breath in before I was pulled back down.
My hand's were flailing around the water and above it to try and reach for something that can keep me up while I figure out what's on my ankle or foot. While that was happening, my feet was trying to kick whatever was grabbing onto me. Eventually I timed myself wrong and ended up taking a breath in when I got dragged down; I swallowed water.
