Is the verb "Drown" an intransitive verb?

For example: You can drown if you don't have a float. You don't say you can be drowned if you don't have a float.

Am I right? And therefore the verb drown can never be passivized.

It can be used transitively and also passivised as in, for example:

He immediately drowned four of the dogs.

Four of the dogs were immediately drowned.
