Tempting as it is to swear, I shall answer squarely. Yes. Yes you can. It occurs when the drownee intakes water into their lungs, thereby preventing the passage of air into the bloodstream through the lung's components. The person then dies from lack of air, if not saved. This is why drowning victims are shown on television with lifesavers pumping their chest, where they try to push the water out of the lungs and facilitate breathing.
