We were struggling for some time

“We were struggling for some time, mostly on our hands and knees. There was no breath for talking. Occasionally we came to blows, but these were dealt accidentally by a long armed finnesko-shod cramponless sledger, who whirled his arms like a windmill in his desperate efforts to keep his balance after slipping.”
— Edgeworth David
