[ANON POST] Waterboarding Someone With Asthma

Setting: Near-future dystopic London with more or less contemporary levels of technology

Research: Lots and lots of gruesome first-person descriptions of waterboarding, "waterboarding + asthma"


I feel like a terrible person for torturing characters thus, but: What exactly would happen to an asthmatic during waterboarding? Is it likely to trigger an attack or be fatal? If it makes a difference, the torturers are aware of the victim's condition and are not actively trying to kill him.
