Navy Seal Reveals How To Survive Being Drowned.
The first step to survive a drowning attempt is to control breathing.
Filling the lungs with air helps the body to float. Sinking to the bottom of the pool is key. Crouch to the bottom and use that as momentum to push up to the top to breath.
"Panicking, which can lead to hyperventilation, is the number-one enemy to survival," explains Emerson.
The next step is the floating technique. Exhale into the water.
Kick the body back, arching the back.
The legs should be stretched up. Push the head out and catch a breath of air.
You can move the knees while you exhale in the water again.
This technique gives you the ability to move and travel in the water.
While you kick the legs back you can also take another breath.
"When facing down, whether floating in place or using a backward kicking motion to swim to shore, the operative should arch his back in order to raise his head above water," Emerson wrote in the book.
