Drowning Doesn’t Look Like Drowning

This article seems to be overly pointed at parents with kids, but it applies to everyone, because the risk of drowning doesn't mysteriously vanish when you turn 18.

The big takeaway is that the television flailing and hollaring isn't what happens - the person is too busy trying to breathe and get their mouth above water to make a sound or any voluntary motions. Drowning is silent - you can't talk or yell when your lungs are filling with water. Splashing doesn't help get the mouth above water, so it doesn't happen either.

If you are boating, please remember your life vest - the extra bouyancy will help. Also, keep the heavy drinking on the shore.
