Well, you can't really see that someone has Long QT syndrome just from outward appearance. The person who can tell most immediately is probably the person who has it. If you have it you might feel your chest pounding or get dizzy. Long QT doesn't automatically lead to cardiac arrest. That's just one of the symptoms that happens to be serious. If you think your heart is beating irregularly or abnormally fast when it's not reasonable, then you may want to bring it up with your doctor. Maybe your doctor will recommend an EKG; it's easy to do and doesn't take much time.
