Los Angeles, Jan 24 (IANS) Actor Matthew Morrison feels lucky to be alive after a terrifying experience while kite surfing when the cord wrapped itself around his neck.

The 34-year-old revealed this in an interview to Britain's OK! magazine, reports contactmusic.com.

Asked whether there is anything the multi-talented actor can't do, he said: "I'm not good at golf and I should be better at flossing my teeth. In fact, there are plenty of things. I like pushing myself and usually if I'm not good at something, I just won't do it because I'm a perfectionist."

"I tried kite surfing and I nearly died. The cord that goes around the kite somehow got wrapped around my neck, and the kite was going so fast and was dragging me underwater. I thought I was going to die. Eventually, the kite dipped down in the water and released the tension on my neck. It was one of the scariest moments of my life," he added.
