I just found this article on Pinterest about drowning. Honestly it scared me because I naively thought drowning people splash and ask for help. Apparently it is usually silent and:
Now I read it, I remember DD as a baby once slipped under water in the tub before my eyes and to this day I shudder at how she looked fine under water (in the split second before I picked her up). It was really quiet, no splashing as one expects. I've already shared this will all parents I know and thought of sharing it here.

There is also secondary drowning in which water is inhaled but the victim seems ok. It is also called dry drowning. The person may die up to 24 hours later.
