Overview of Dry drowning

Symptoms of Dry Drowning

The signs and symptoms of all types of drowning usually occur right away—it’s rare for symptoms to begin more than a few minutes after the event.

Symptoms of dry drowning include:

  • Low energy
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing and/or irregular, fast breathing
  • Trouble speaking
  • The appearance of the chest sinking in
  • Pale or bluish skin color
  • Diminished alertness or unusual behavior
  • Coughing that does not resolve within a few minutes

It’s important to seek medical attention right away, particularly if the symptoms worsen or don’t subside quickly.
