Real drowning signs aren’t what’s depicted in movies or TV. The distress signs can be rather subtle. Find out what it really looks like when a person is drowning.
When a person is really drowning they don’t actually move that much. A person who is drowning will not move back and forth in the water but stay in one place. They will bob up and down as they try to keep their head above the water. They aren’t able to yell for help, because they are too busy trying to breathe. Also, they don’t wave their arms over their head, because they are trying to grab at the water. Finally, they are disoriented due to their panic.
