not dead: Likelhood of getting pregnant is low, but the sperm don't die as soon as they "hit the air".

Sperm survival: Sperm can survive for up to 24 or more hours in the proper environment. If you are ovulating and your cervical mucous is thin and watery, it may enable sperm to swim to the egg that has been released.
