Sir Paul McCartney almost drowned as a boy.
71-year-old legend Sir Paul McCartney 's brother, Mike McGear McCartney, revealed the pair of them are lucky to be alive after they ''were clinging for their lives'' in a ditch and is glad their screams were heard by neighbours who helped to save them.
Mike admits that their dad, James 'Jim' McCartney, was not pleased when he found out, but since they were visibly shaken, he let them off.
Meanwhile, talking on the 'Kevin & Bean' show, Paul has insisted he likes talking about his Beatles heyday since it's like looking at a ''scrapbook'' full of fond memories.
