Air consists of more free oxygen as compared to water (which consist of bound oxygen to water molecule). Also, in the air, the amount of oxygen is more as compared to water.

Thus, if the oxygen pick-up would have depend upon the amount of oxygen, then the person would have been able to respire easier in the air instead of water.
