0001403: Unconscious dwarf not drowning
I have a save with a dwarven child being viciously slaughtered by a titan. Inside, in 7/7 water, with a ceiling on top. Neither one is drowning (or dieing). I don't know if the titan should be drowning, for all I know it can breathe under water. The child, however, should be dead already. The child is unconscious, and the health screen shows that they can't breathe, but also says that they're not drowning.

I think there was a prior report about unconscious people not dying from strangulation. Apparently they just don't need to breathe at all!

In adventure mode, I went unconscious from a mortal wound while drowning, but I didn't die from drowning and woke op again, I managed to get on the shore before dieing from a blind cave bear attack. So it's also in adventure mode.
