"Time" is very important in saving a drowned victim's life. A drowned person might have a period of hypoxia (No oxygen breathed into the lung, and hence no oxygen supplied to the brain).
After 3 to 5 minute of hypoxia, the cell in the brain will die.

Performing a very proper CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) 心肺復甦法 is essential to save a life. A drowned victim breathes a lot of water into his/her airway and lung. The victim cannot maintain a normal effective breathing. A person doing proper CPR (before the Ambulance Man arrived) may help by providing adequate amount of oxygen into the victim's lung so that his/her brain can still keep alive.

If you want to learn CPR properly, please refer to the website of St John's Ambulance or Red Cross.
