The sudden realization of being thrown into the pool did not make him lose his wits

immediately. Although frightened, he thought of a trick to come up to the surface but

couldn't execute it successfully. He panicked and felt suffocated by the water. His

sense-perceptions gave way, his heart pounded loudly, his limbs became paralyzed

with fear, his mind became dizzy and his lungs ached as he gulped water while making

desperate attempts to come out of the water. Finally, he lost all his strength and

willingness to keep struggling and blacked out.

Douglas planned to allow himself to go down till his feet hit the bottom so that could

make a big jump to come back to the surface like a cork. Then, he would lie flat on the

surface of water and paddle to the edge of the pool.
