  1. Being underwater taking in water for less than 5 seconds does not make one blue. It must have been longer period of time for the child to be blue, so either the time span was not reported accurately or the person who used the word blue was being overly dramatic. I know. I have witnessed children pulled from water before. The blue may be accurate if s/he had been already swimming for a while in cold water.
