No, thats a myth.  After a few minuttes your lungs ans sinuses start to dry
out pretty bad, so you could ghet a hell of a nose blead and such.  It would
feel like the worst cheast could in your life.   But if you get back into air
in a few minuttes you'll be fine other than that.  If you don't get back
inside its the most painless death known.  You pass out from oxegen loss and
after 10-15 minutes you die while your out.
