Lots of people drown each year because their cars become submerged underwater in a crash, and they cannot get out. This is something that needs to change, could you get out of an underwater car?
This is a lot harder than you would think, Geoff Fahringer an expert diver says that there is not enough time for rescuers to reach you in situations like this, you have to be able to save yourself. The small amount of time you have before the vehicle becomes completely submerged should be the time that you make your escape.
Wasting your time trying to call 911 or things like they won’t do you any good if you’re still trapped inside the vehicle, you would think this would be common sense, but it is something people do quite commonly. In the video below Fahringer demonstrates what you need to do in order to get out of a vehicle when it is sinking.
Please pay close attention to this video and if ever in the situation implement it into your life. Don’t become another number, be prepared. This knowledge could save your life.
