Drowning Doesn't Look Like Drowning

As an uninformed non-lifeguard, I found this article enlightening. For instance:

Drowning people cannot wave for help. Nature instinctively forces them to extend their arms laterally and press down on the water’s surface. Pressing down on the surface of the water, permits drowning people to leverage their bodies so they can lift their mouths out of the water to breathe.

I had no idea. [via @jasonfried]
