    This is the first time I've heard of dry drowning. And I thought that once you survived swimming and didn't drown, you're out of danger. Apparently in some cases, you can be perfectly well and show only the symptoms after a few hours.

    Wow that's kind of creepy, I never heard of it before.

    Does make sense though, after almost drowning that leftover water can cause serious problems.

    I was shocked to hear that you can still drown when you come out of the water. I saw the headlines and I was like how is that possible? I guess he ingested enough water and it filled up his lungs.
