Opening with a drowning-rescue sounds awesome, but be very careful if you’re trying to hide some character feature during it. If dancing around that is going to make the dynamic of the scene unclear, then scrap that idea. Your opening scene should be very, very clear, especially if it’s going to be explosive like that.
