Stop pouring water on people that fainted, here are the things you should do to revive them.

Lost consciousness or fainting is a brief moment of black out people experience in one point of their lives, and for a brief moment, enough oxygen was not getting to their brain, so they stop to breath. 

A sudden emotional experience like fear can lead to fainting because the body triggers a response that for a brief moment, lowers their blood pressure so that not enough blood is going to the brain.

There is this norm that when a person fainted, the next thing people around would do is to pour an available water on the patient in the bit to revive. That norm is absolutely wrong and it needs to be stopped. It takes a few moments to get conscious again.

The ignorance of what should be done to people that lose consciousness often result to deaths.
