Matthew Morrison: not a passionate kiteboarder

Matthew Morrison, the star of the "Glee" TV series, almost lost his life during his first kiteboarding experience.

Morrison wanted to try kiteboarding and was having his first lesson. Suddenly, the kite cords surrounded his neck, and he was pulled 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", explained Matthew Morrison.

"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".

The actor who plays Mr. Shue in "Glee" will surely stay away from kiteboarding after this near-death experience.
