OK: If you were there when she fell forward, and she isnt choking, gagging, color change or coughing, I believe everything is alright. If she hasnt contracted a fever, that is more evidence that she is alright. good health to both of you

Drowning: did she really shook or aspirate when Shen fell? If she didn't, it should be fine. Watch her breathing and see how she does
