Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
Matt Mina, the Newport Beach teen who was saved from the sandy sinkhole, knows that he's lucky to be alive.
Mina spoke to CBS Los Angeles about his ordeal, saying, "I thought I was going to die." He also feared that no one could hear him screaming.
"The helplessness you feel when you're underground -- it's like, you think you can just pull yourself out, but you can't. It's so heavy," Mina explained.
