Worst Moments

One day I and my friends went swimming as usual on sunday evening, at first everything moved smothely as usual. We competed on swimming with my friends until it was time to go back home since it was now getting dark. When we were out putting our clothes on, one of us who was still in the river started shouting, his voice shows that he was in great pain. When we jumped into the water for his rescue, we found out that, he was bitten by a snake. We quickly did all we could to rescue him did for him first aid and quiclky rush him to the hospital. We were in time at the hospital and therefore the bad poison of the snake were paralized and the boy was not affected by the poison of the snake.
