  • Head low in the water, mouth at water level
  • Head tilted back with mouth open
  • Eyes glassy and empty, unable to focus
  • Eyes closed
  • Hair over forehead or eyes
  • Not using legs – Vertical
  • Hyperventilating or gasping
  • Trying to swim in a particular direction but not making headway
  • Trying to roll over on the back
  • Appear to be climbing an invisible ladder.

    Thanks for this; I’ve seen someone drowning before, and this was exactly what it looked like. Thankfully, he made it.

    Thankfully he did. I witnessed someone drowning last summer and do not think he made it. 😦
