What's the scariest thing that has happened to you involving a child
Mine was when we were all fishing at DF'S dad's house. It was me, DF our son(2), his cousin, her husband and their kids dd (6) and son (2.5). DF and her DH went out in the boat and we stayed on the dock with the kids. The men were annoyed with us for freaking out everytime the kids got close to the water.
Anyway we were catching fish like crazy, the cousin freaking out anytime one fell off so I had to grab them.It started getting dark so we decided we were gonna pack up and head back to the house. As soon as we said that she got a bite so she reeled it in and was taking forever to grab it (she's a chicken lol) and of course it come off the hook. Well she started screaming at me "Get it, get it get it" So I stood up to get it and all of a sudden "Get it" turn into "OMG GET HIM GET HIM PLEASE GET HIM"
I turned just in time to see her 2.5 year old's head going under water. Apparently he was scared of the fish and went backwards off the dock. I was in shock for a second and in about 5 secs everything rushed through my head. I knew I couldn't just jump in for fear I would freak when I didn't touch the bottom. So I jumped down onto my stomach and pushed myself as far as I could and the only thing I could grab was his hair. I grabbed that and pulled him back far enough to grab his arms and pulled his head above water. I had to yell for her to pull him out bcuz I couldn't lift him (I'm pregnant and he's quite large...55lbs to be exact)
She pulled him out and we all just sat there shaking in shock...then she started freaking out bcuz I had basically thrown myself down on my stomach but honestly I had to do what I had to do.
That was honestly the single scariest moment of my life, seeing his head go under....her frozen in fear/shock....
