why do people drown?

I don't really understand people who can't swim. I understand if they don't know how to do the breast stroke properly, or being pulled under by a current, but how could a healthy adult drown in calm waters because they don't know how to swim? It seems like the survival instinct would sink in... treading water seems like it would be the automatic response. And if they get tired, they can just float face up. Right?
