A drowning Sim

Drowning is a form of death in The Sims, The Sims 2 and The Sims 3. Drowning is the second form of death which covers all ages from child to elder, the other being fire. A Sim will drown in a pool when there is no means of getting out. In The Sims and The Sims 2, deleting a pool ladder takes away the Sim's only means of escape. However, in The Sims 3, Sims can climb out of the pool without a ladder, so players who want to keep a Sim from getting out of a pool must use a wall to block them. When Sims can't get out of a pool, they will keep swimming until their energy is used up. When this happens, they will die of fatigue.

Drowning normally requires the player to force the Sim to drown as Sims will usually get out of a pool before they drown, if they are able to do so.

The Grim ReaperEdit

When a Sim drowns, the Grim Reaper arrives as usual. However, players generally cannot have another Sim plead with him as with other means of death, as Sims will not be able to get to him while he is in the in the middle of the pool. Therefore, Sims who have drowned likely have no chance of regaining life unless they are resurrected.

However, two expansion packs for The Sims 2 provide exceptions to this. If The Sims 2: FreeTime is installed, a drowned Sim who had successfully wished for the power to cheat death can plead for their own life. Also, if The Sims 2: Apartment Life is installed, an infallibly good witch or warlock with at least level 9 magic skill can use the spell "Expello Mortis," which will reach further out; though it will not be able to reach the middle of a very large pool.

Drowned GhostsEdit

In The Sims 2, the ghost of a Sim who has drowned will be a shade of blue and will often create puddles or flood a room while they walk about. Other Sims may have to mop this up. Sometimes they will leap into bathtubs and start the bath water. Afterwards, they will jump out.

In The Sims 3, the ghost of a drowned Sim is still blue and will have water dripping from their body, but won't create puddles. The ghost of a Sim who has died from the Watery Grave trick in Showtime is identical to be the ghost of a drowning Sim prior to patch 1.50. The gravestone of drowned Sim is the same as Sims who die from scuba diving.

Sometimes, in The Sims 3, the first time the player attempts to send a Sim who had drowned and has recently been resurrected via the Science Lab, that Sim will either refuse, or get the "Drowning" moodlet. Also, if a Sim dies while in a pool, it still be counted as drowning even if the Sim dies from another cause, such as starvation.
