Survivors tell you how to survive traffic accidents (3)

Third, find the nearest exit on board. A study found that the average distance a survivor will take in an evacuation is seven seat rows, so choose an aisle seat within this range. If not available, count exactly how many rows you are from the nearest exit in advance, so that you can find your exit in the dark or in smoke.

Fourth, sit backwards on trains. Seats on military aircrafts normally face backwards so that soldiers are less likely to be bumped and injured in the head in the event of a crash. The same theory applies to trains.

Fifth, listen carefully to the safety briefing given by the cabin crew. Follow the crew's instructions in the event of a plane crash. You should adopt the brace position as the crash position by drawing back your lower legs as much as possible and placing your head as close as possible to your knees. If a bus crashes and you are not wearing a seat belt, you should immediately hold firm a hard object nearby and huddle up. Meanwhile, bend over and put your head between your knees to prevent injury in the head or other major body parts.
