    Default preposition

    Which of these sentences is correct (we are in a swimming pool, so the sentences aren't absurd):
    1-He overtook me from below.
    2-He overtook me from underneath.
    3-He overtook me from under me.
    4-He overtook me from beneath.
    5-He overtook me from beneath me.
