How to Survive an Airplane Crash


How to Survive an Airplane Crash. In the unlikely event you’re ever in a plane
crash, these tips will dramatically improve your odds of walking away from it alive. You will need An aisle seat or one close to
it Long-sleeved pants and top and flat closed-toe shoes and a smoke hood or a wet washcloth. Step 1. Book a seat in the exit row or within five
rows of it. People in those seats have the highest survival
rates. Aisle seats are safer than windows seats,
unless you’re sitting next to an exit door. Step 2. Wear pants and a long-sleeved shirt made of
non-flammable material, like denim or cotton, and flat, sturdy, closed-toe shoes. You want clothes that don’t restrict movement,
but also offer some protection from flames, flying debris, and the elements. Step 3. Bring a smoke hood, or even just a wet washcloth
sealed in a plastic bag. Most crash victims survive impact, but die
of smoke inhalation. If you don’t have a smoke hood or wet cloth,
breathe through your clothing. Step 4. Once aboard, count the seats between you and
the nearest front and rear emergency exit. You want to be able to feel your way should
the cabin fill with smoke. Note where the flight attendants sit, so you’ll
know where to turn for instructions. Step 5. When instructed, brace yourself for an emergency
landing. With your feet on the floor, cross your arms
on the seat in front of you and lower your head onto them. If there is no seat in front, hug your knees. Try to remain that way until the plane comes
to a complete stop. Remove any sharp objects from your shirt and
pants. If you wear glasses, take them off. Step 6. It may sound stupid, but remind yourself that
airplane seat belts open by lifting a buckle, not pushing a button. Research shows that many flyers forget this
when they’re panicked, delaying their exit. Step 7. If the cabin fills with smoke, forget what
you learned about staying close to the floor in a fire. In a commercial jetliner, you want to stoop,
not crawl. You’ll still get air, but you won’t run the
risk of being trampled. Exit the plane immediately and find your loved
ones outside. Trying to find them inside will delay everyone,
including those you’re trying to help. Step 8. Once off the plane, run for your life — literally. You want to get away from the plane in case
it explodes. Did you know Research shows that passengers
who sit near the back of the plane are 40% more likely to survive a crash than those
in the first few rows.
