5. A Victim of Wet Drowning May Not Call Out For Help
When water enters the lungs, the vocal cords usually go into a spasm. This condition prevents the victim from calling out for help. As such, the drowning victim will probably not thrash and flail about in the water, beginning for rescue. He or she may die in front of friends and families.
A trained lifeguard will be able to recognize the silent symptoms of drowning and be able to rescue a victim who is completely quiet. One of the best ways to prevent drowning is to make sure that you only swim when a lifeguard is on duty.
