In the contact of the water, vessels, dilated by the prolonged exposure to the sun and the heat, undergo a rough constriction pulling a syncope(syncopation).
You are on the beach(range) or at the edge of a swimming pool and a person is a victim of a hydrocution. First obvious rule(ruler): take(bring) out the person of the water to lengthen(to stretch out) him(it) on a plane surface.

Attention on baïnes
A potentially dangerous phenomenon was observed on the beach of the Handle to Jacques, in young-Havre. It is thus recommended to inquire about the schedules of the maréeset not to leave unsupervised the children there.
" The functioning of the baïne is directly connecte to the report existing between the water level which it contains and that of the ocean. The influence of the tide is thus essential
Low tide, the baïne being empty, it presents no danger.
In rising tide, its functioning, its strength and thus its dangerousness are increasing until, submerged by the tide, it presents no more level difference with the ocean. The danger is then worthles.
In low tide, we find the same phenomenon until the baïne is empty.
In high tide, if the baine is totally performed, it presents no more danger. " (Extracted from the site nautical Rescuer
