An emergency situation - what does drowning 'look like?'
BY NIKKI SHOUTZ

Most people do not have any idea what drowning looks like. Half of the people who’ll drown this summer are within reach of someone who could save them.
Five things to watch for:
1. Head tilted back: The victim tilts his head back in a futile attempt to keep above water. His hair is typically over the forehead or eyes and he may seem like he’s trying to roll over on his back.
