Local doctors should be available near the spot to give first aid and other medicinal care to the drowning victim to revive his life. Mouth to mouth resurrection can revive some of them. The intake of water is to be taken out before proceeding further and give the confidence to the victim that survival is possible in this case also. But prevention is better than cure. Let us take care to save human life from drowning.
