Here is a safe way to avoid drowning if your car plunge into a river.
A lot of people drowned simply because they didn’t know: If you find yourself underwater in a car, don’t panic.
Any car accident is frightening, but being trapped inside a sinking car is absolutely terrifying. Fortunately, you and your passengers have a good chance of escaping from a sinking car if you stay calm and act quickly. Unbuckle your seatbelt immediately after entering the water, open or break a window, and get yourself and any other passengers out—starting with any children. Prepare for sinking accidents by keeping a glass-breaking tool in your car and rehearsing your escape plan.
If you are alone, following this simple steps may just be the life saver;
- Dont waste your energy trying to push the door.
- Do not open the window, the force of the water entering the car will not allow you to get out.
- Take out the head restraint.
- Use the steel sharp tip and break the back window that has kick out glass on it.
The car by engineering and design is intended to float in the water and the rear window will always be facing the exit.
Try to remain calm and act quickly. Panic reduces energy, uses up precious air, and causes you to blank out. As soon as you see that you are about to head into a body of water, take a couple of deep breaths and tell yourself “I need to stay focused and act immediately.” Focus on what is happening in the moment and on the steps you will need to take to escape.
