Have you heard of this? "Dry Drowning?"

"According to the Centers for Disease Control, some 3,600 people drowned in 2005, the most recent year for which there are statistics. Some 10 to 15 percent of those deaths was classified as “dry drowning,” which can occur up to 24 hours after a small amount of water gets into the lungs. In children, that can happen during a bath."

This just happened in NYC. It was on the news the other night. A little boy dies 4 hours after swimming. He had swallowed water from the pool. I almost thought I heard it wrong on the tv.
