Description Kagawa university's two single sculls were out on lake Fuchu (Sakaide city) and one of them; Mr. Kawai (19 years old) capsized at the centre of the lake. At first, Kawai was holding Mr. A's single scull and they tried to get to shore. But the single scull leaked so Mr. A swam to the shore and called for rescue.
