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. -- Send mail for the `techdiver' mailing list to `firstname.lastname@example.org'.
