This Is The Easiest Way To Escape A Sinking Vehicle. Knowing HOW Might Save Your Life Some Day

This Is The Easiest Way To Escape A Sinking Vehicle. Knowing HOW Might Save Your Life Some DayAn estimated 400 people die each year because their car becomes submerged underwater during a crash, according to data collected by Canadian researcher Gordon Giesbrecht.

A lot of people stuck in this situation end up doing the wrong thing in the moment their car becomes submerged.

In this video below, Geoff Fahringer, who is an expert diver, demonstrates what to do by rolling an older vehicle down a ramp and into an 8 foot deep canal with him inside, and later in the video, with several people.

For a dozen years, he’s been on the dive rescue team for the Collier County Sheriff’s department in Naples, Fla.

According to researcher Gordon Giesbrecht, the bottom line is that there simply isn’t enough time for rescuers to reach you in this situation, you have to do it for yourself.

“We’re telling people that you have to get out of the vehicle before the water gets up against the windows, and that’s really in the first 30 to 60 seconds.”, he says

That means, don’t reach for your cell phone when you hit the water. “Don’t call 9-1-1 from inside a sinking vehicle,” he adds.

Make sure to pay attention to this video, this might save your life some day!
