Astronaut Nearly Drowns in Outer Space

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — In one of the most harrowing spacewalks in decades, an astronaut had to rush back into the International Space Station on Tuesday after a mysterious water leak inside his helmet robbed him of the ability to speak or hear, and could have caused him to choke or even drown.
Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano was reported to be fine after the dangerous episode, which might have been caused by a leak in the cooling system of his suit. His spacewalking partner, NASA astronaut Christopher Cassidy, had to help him inside after Mission Control quickly aborted the spacewalk.

Isn't it ironic for a person to almost drown in outer space where there is nothing. Imagine asking the question 100 years ago,"A man is in outer space and drowns to death, how did this happen"? It's equivlaent to burning to death sitting on iceberg.
Oops. Something tells me they need new space suits.
