I found this out because I always used to eat before swimming and never puked - TwilightKitsune
There is a belief that swimming immediately after eating will cause stomach cramps, which could lead to drowning. However, this has never been documented.

Wearing cement shoes and tying your arms and legs can also make drowning more likely, but these things do not disprove that swimming with a full stomach doesn't increase the risk of cramps. These are separate and unrelated to whether or not the item listed is factual - Billyv
Cramps sucks! lol
