What steps should be taken to First aid a person apparently drowned ?

The person should be laid flat on his back, his head being supported by a cushion. The arms should then
be grasped above the elbows, they should be drawn steadily upwards above the head, and kept there for
two seconds. The arms should then be lowered, and pressed firmly against the sides. These two movements
produce inspiration and expiration respectively. These movements should be repeated fifteen times per minute
for no less than half an hour.
