In all of my 50+ years on the water, I've never seen someone drown - thank god. Possibly worse yet, I never knew that's what somebody did when they were actually drowning. Thank you so much for sharing that one!

Makes perfect sense. I jumped from a boat a few years ago and accidently breathed some water in. It was fast and VERY scary I recovered but I came away with the thought "thats one way it happens" I'm alot more carefull now.

Thanks for sharing. A must read for everyone. Also, a baby or infant in the water doesn't float, They sink fast so always use infant life jackets. Always!!.
