Humans of Southport: Kylie Gibson

Michael Hood, Reporter

“I was six years old, and I was visiting my aunt in Florida. We went to a water park, and there was this big slide. Me and my cousin really wanted to go down it, so my aunt told us she’d be at the bottom to catch us. My cousin went down first, and I was supposed to wait a minute after she went down. A kid behind me shoved me. So, I went down the slide, and my aunt wasn’t there to catch me. I just sunk to the bottom. I swear I heard violins. I think I was dying. The next thing I knew, a lifeguard came in and got me. I was fine. I lived.”
