Today, I went to a river near my house. They have several swing ropes that you grab and then jump into the river. As I was about to let go of the rope, my leg got tangled and I was held underwater. My mom watched and laughed for a while before she came to help me. FML

If you were underwater how do you know she was laughing?

Nice mother! Always there to save you!

Water boarding usually requires two people however I think you found a do it yourself version

I saw a YouTube video of something just like this!

#20 how good of you!!

Maybe it was the op is what I meant :[

OP's lucky she was there. If no one was there then OP would have been screwed.

It's possible OP wasn't really in that much danger and her mother had good reason to have a bit of a laugh before coming to her rescue. At least she helped in the end!

I'm pretty sure I saw a viral video of this on YouTube. Tobuscus anyone?

Hasn't anyone seen the movie Bridge to terabithia?

64 - I haven't seen it, but I read the book back when I was about 10. Good book :-)

"Oh, that water's cold! I'll save you! And help you wash your hair!" -Rope, paraphrased

I opened the comments, pushed ctr+f and typed in "Tobuscus" !

97 + 103, actually the more I think about this FML, the more I think this actually IS the viral video :)

Um I was just talking about how Leslie falls into the river and dies by swinging on a rope. Lol it wasn't a literal question I was being smart a*s

Op might have heard her

Actually u can't here any above water noises unless your ears are close to the surface. Any deeper than 1-2 feet and you can only here loud noises and from 4 feet or lower you can only hear very loud noises and sound barrier breaking noises or a sonic wave from an explosion. Or it could depend on the thickness consistency of the water.

Perhaps when she went to save her, the mom was still laughing. Probably told her as much.

Well since the mom laughed and watched for a while, I assume OP was able to pull herself out of the water at least once.

Anytime 71, anytime. Oh wait I'm not google

Unless the rope was touching the water when straight and OP was completely submerged, they could hear the laughter.

The thickness consistency of water ? How does the thickness of water change ? Lol

Why do you care?

what is with these jersey moms lately? taking 5 year old to tanning booth and now almost letting their daughters drown

That woman's skin was something else, when she dies they can make bags from her skin!

That woman didn't actually put her 5 year old in the tanning bed. The little girl had a sunburn and people accused her of doing it, but the tanning salon she goes to confirmed that the daughter always waits in the front with other family members while the mom tans. The woman still has a problem though, her skin is crazy gross.

jerseyboy732 16

of course the tanning sallon is gonna side with her. if she goes to jail then they lose 50% of their bussiness

She's so tan it's racist. She's also a walking, talking cancer cell.

Sounds like one of those America's Funniest Videos ... did she catch it on tape?

Does anyone else remember being really little and wanting to submit a video to AFV but never catching anything clever on tape? :(

Never trust a rope that doesn't have a tire tied to it

may651 14

That's what she said. I know negative numbers. That was bad I am sorry. :( shame

I don't even trust those ones

thats why one should always secure the rope around the neck to keep from drowning :)

Yeah that's a good idea. Wrapping a rope around your neck and jumping. Fun

#23 if you're asking that, you're more of a dumbass. He's obviously joking.

Explain to her the long term damage that can be caused by drowning (and I don't mean death, I mean if you survive). I doubt she'll be laughing then.

I would still laugh but then again I generally hate every one and think most people should die.
