Is it possible to fall asleep in the bath tub and drowned or would you wake up when you start to inhale water?

In brief: Would awaken
Sleep is an arousable condition, assuming that this is normal sleep and not sleep influenced by certain medical conditions, medications, drugs or alcohol.
The gag reflex would be enough to cause arousal and awakening.
