What to do in a plane crash? Here are 5 tips
After a heavy flight through a storm from Durham
to our new destination, we have wondered what best to do in the case of a plane crash or an emergency landing. Hopefully these are tips you’ll never need, but we’ll give them to you anyway. Then you know what you can do if you ever end up in an emergency landing and a possible plane crash.
Today’s flights are so safe that a chance of a plane crash is so small that you shouldn’t be afraid of a crash. If you do have this, you can prepare for this. Put on comfortable clothes. For example, you’re better at wearing easy shoes than heels. You’re not fast in heels, and getting out of something isn’t that easy. Preferably wear easy clothes that are also warm. Or even pay attention to the right fabric of clothes and do not choose combustible fabrics. Once again, the chances of your plane crashing are almost nonexistent, but if it were to happen, it could save your life.
2 Right place
Take the right seat on the plane. Did you know that from the back of the plane you’re 50 percent more likely to survive a plane crash than if you were in the front? You have a better chance of surviving in a crash at the back of the plane and you save money because these are often the cheapest airline tickets. Double advantage!
3 Right attitude
The correct attitude in the case of a plane crash is also important. Perhaps the most important thing to increase your chances of survival. Put your hands crossed on the chair in front of you and put your head on it. Please note, crossing your hands can be dangerous. Another good method is to put your head directly against the chair in front of you and put your hands in your neck. This may be the best method. Above all, stay calm and follow the instructions of the safety card that is present on the plane.
4 Everything gone
As soon as it is certain that your plane is going to crash, you need to put away all the loose stuff as soon as possible. This can range from your mobile phone to even a separate button. These can become life-threatening objects at high speeds. Also close your sweater or jacket and even check that your laces are tightly tied. These little things can save your life.
5 Fast off
If your plane crashed, then see that you get out of the plane as quickly as possible. Because did you know that statistically, most of the deaths are after the crash itself? This is mainly due to fires that occur and clouds of smoke that are being developed. Don’t keep walking near the debris of the plane either. An explosion with kerosene can be very large. So when boarding, always check where the nearest emergency exits are.
