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

An 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!

  1. This is not a real case scenario,ie the car has been modified unlike a real car.
    It is very obvious that there is no back window..
    Yes, that makes it much safer, but it also makes it fake.

    2. Wait for car to fill completely with water, that changes the pressure and makes it much easier to just open a door. Stupid vife, most cars have electric Windows and will become useless once the water ruins the electrical system, best to Wait forcar to fill all the way with water and opena door

    4. i would like to know it too. i know that cars windows are conceived so that you can break them more easely from inside than outside, and the bar of the thing we use to put our head on are made sturdy enough to break the windows, so you can use these to escape in emergency situation. But in the end it totally depend of the situation, and of ourselves
