Here are a few tips on how to choose costumes that help you have a higher chance of surviving in the event of a plane crash.
Despite knowing that the probability of an aircraft accident is very low, passengers should still learn the safety measures for themselves in the worst case scenario. Specifically, The Sun has given a few tips to help passengers minimize injuries and increase the chances of survival if something goes wrong.
In the event of an aircraft crash, fire or glass will make escape barefoot more difficult.
Avoid shoes and sandals on the plane: The choice of shoes when traveling on the plane must also ensure that they help you run fast? Therefore, the airline always encourages passengers to wear sneakers or flat shoes, instead of high heels when flying.
Besides choosing the right shoes, you should also limit taking off shoes while on the flight. Because in the event of an aircraft accident, fire or broken glass can make escape barefoot more difficult. You can even get burned by fire or be injured by stepping on sharp debris.
Wear suitable clothes: Many statistics show that 68% of the victims in the plane crash died due to a fire that subsequently caused them to burn or breathe smoke. Therefore, you should not wear flammable clothing or baggy clothes. To increase your chances of surviving a fire, choose clothes made of cotton or wool over nylon. Some experts suggest a suitable outfit for you is a T-shirt that combines slim or loose pants and an extra thin coat on the outside.
Choose the position behind the plane: The rows of seats at the rear of the aircraft are often not a favorite choice for many people because they are quite narrow, easy to shock when the plane passes through bad weather. But according to a study from the Aviation Safety Network, the seats at the bottom of the cabin can increase your chances of survival, based on the survival rate from 65 aircraft crashes.
