James lived in Kota Kinabalu. His father brought them to Kerambunai Nexus Resort yesterday. James was very excited because he loved swimming. He quickly packed his swimming gear and dashed down the stairs. He was the first one to get into the car. It tickled everyone as he was usually the last one.
It was a long drive to reach their destination. When they arrived at the pool, James ran out of the car and headed straight for the changing room to change into his swimming trunks. He was at the pool in a blink of an eye.
He was in such a hurry to get into the water that he did not notice that he was at the adults’ pool. He plunged into the water eagerly and soon realised his folly. In his panic, he developed cramps in his legs and was soon struggling in the deep water. “Somebody save me!” he cried out.
The alert lifeguard saw James flailing his arms in the air. He quickly dived into the water and pulled James to safety. James was in a state of shock but he was very glad to be alive and kicking.
