    Grammar Correction

    My Parents told me to come back to the shallow area when I almost slump.

    Thank you.

    What is your definition of "slump"?

    I have the same question as billmcd, but I'll assume you mean that you almost dropped down below the surface of the water.
    If so, "My parents told me to come back to the shallow area when I almost went under" would be a natural way to express this.
