How Long Can Someone Survive Under Water?

By Doug
This is something from this morning's news. When I learned CPR we were told that there was little hope for someone after just 6 minutes. Hopefully news like this will help save lives. 


  1. Indeed this is news that need to be spread. The current record for revival from cold water I think is something like an hour. Don't remember the specifics, but the current rule for revival is that one is not dead until one is warm and dead. Cold and not breathing is not necessarily dead.

    1. Brilliant! Cold means that there is still a chance to save the person.
