    When you see someone swims it really looks easy, the reality is it is hard. I almost drowned once and I was saved by someone else. my advice to all , if you do not have a swimming background please before you think of going to the pool make sure there is always people around you. this guy is the second Ethiopian person I heard drowned trying to swim.

    Good bless the Family.
