Presumably the rescue subject would have to learn how to imitate 
oxygen convulsions.

I remember once long ago, I was with some air scuba divers who 
were practising rescuing in a small flooded quarry inland. I was the 
body. Instead of the proper way, the rescuer towed me by one arm 
as if I was a dead sheep. I let my mouthpiece fall out, as if I was 
uconscious, and he did not notice it. I used my free arm to snatch 
a breath from my mouthpiece once in a while (but if I was genuinely 
unconscious I could not have done that). When he finally got me to 
the bank, I declared myself dead from drowning and I terminated 
the exercise.
