With beach season on the horizon, it’s a good time to prepare yourself for what to do in emergency water situations. While many people believe they could easily notice another person drowning, its been proven that the signs are harder to tell than you may think.

According to a Slate.com article, drowning doesn’t always look like drowning. It says that the normal signs usually expected, like calling for help and waving one’s arms, are not acts that drowning individuals are capable of doing. Also, while most people expect flailing bodies to be seen, someone who is drowning most likely appears to be sitting upright up in the water.

There is a list of alternate things to look for:

Closed eyes

Head tilted back with open mouth

Not using legs

Trying to roll over on the back
