... while snorkeling?

How exactly can you put precautionary measures in place to protect people while snorkeling? All you can do is give them a life vest. The rest is Darwinian.

I'm sorry, but some things people need to take account for themselves.
Question

1. Can you swim?

2. Can you hold your breath?
3. Can you breath underwater?

Someone who is drowning is going to struggle a lot. He didn't just fall unconscious.

Chinese are land animals not marine creatures.... They should stay away from water....Fiery cross reef included

Many hyperventilate whilst snorkeling which can lead to oxygen deprivation.

Put that on top of them thinking they know how to swim when they don't, as well as possible cardiac repercussions to both I think the recipe is there for this to consistently happen.

Probably should begin researching a rope and winch system on these people, hook em up, reel them in when it looks like they're in trouble.
