Nothing paranormal here, but a useful reminder of the difficulties with memory, when for example people ask why someone doesn't recall having an NDE.

Cold water swim 'obliterated' woman's short-term memory

Quote:A woman who lost her short-term memory after swimming in the sea last month has said people should not be put off.

Sue Hodge, 66, has no memory of going in the sea or even driving to Newquay in Cornwall for a swim on 18 November.

Her friend noticed she appeared "vacant" and confused after the short swim and called an ambulance to take her to hospital.

Her next memory was seven hours later and medics told her the cold water had triggered transient global amnesia.
