Sometimes, after swimming underwater (without SCUBA) and coming up to the surface, the player will still drown, despite his head being above the waterline.

1.) Swim underwater.
2.) Come up to surface by moving forward at an angle.
3.) Drown with head still above waterline.
I think it has to do with a lack of information regarding if you're underwater or not. I've drowned a few times w/o SCUBA equipement and now I make sure to press X (at least 2 times) to make sure my character is a maximum "water-height".
I've also had this happen a few times. The way to ensure you are above water is to completely stop moving and hold x until you see your character come as far out of the water as he can. This usually works.
A little fix could be needed for this so that you don't always have to do this.
I experienced getting stuck under water today with SCUBA, but the only side effect was that sound above water was muted.
Though i can confirm that i've drowned without water despite being on the surface.
You have to keep pressing X every second otherwise you slowly start sinking.
I have drowned alot probally 40% of the 100 times i have tried. The audio does not always make the gasping sound upon re-surface.
Part of the issue is that to swim with your head above water, you must angle your view up significantly. The problem is then you can't see where you're going.
