Survival Skills Everyone Should Know In These 10 Life-Threatening Situations

Do you know our life is the precious thing we have in the world? Yes that’s right! Sometimes, every person on Earth will find itself in a situation where its life is in danger.

What would you do in a situation where your life would hang by a thread? Would you stay calm? Or would you start feeling agonized and thereby lose the opportunity to save your dear life?

Scientists claim that a person can survive in a dangerous situation if it quickly makes an action plan. In this article, we will teach you such action plans and how to save your life in 10 most dangerous situations:

  1. Falling Elevator

Remember that chances of you being in a falling elevator are slim. However, if that ever happens to you, lie on the floor. You are most likely to survive this way and only end up with a few broken bones.

  1. Trapped in Cold Water

If you find yourself trapped in freezing water with a life jacket, incorporate the HELP method immediately to prevent hypothermia.

HELP method stands for Heat Escape Lessening Posture and that means crossing your arms over your chest and bringing your legs up to your chest.

  1. Bystander Effect

If an accident happens in front of your eyes, don’t just stand there like a statue. Be the one to take action and help people who experienced accident.

If you just stand there looking the accident scene, you will become a part of the bystander effect.

  1. Surviving a Riptide

If you ever experience a riptide, don’t fight it. Let it do its job. It is most likely that the riptide will take you back to the shore within four minutes.

  1. Wild Animal Attack

Wild animal attacks are more common than you think they are. If you ever encounter a wild animal, don’t look it in the eyes and don’t turn your back to it.

Also, don’t even think of running from the animal since it may get you.

  1. Flooded Car

Flooded cars don’t only appear in movies. People actually start sinking in the body while being in their car on a daily basis.

The same moment your car begins sinking, unbuckle your seatbealt and break your car’s window with your car’s headrest. If you sink down to the bottom, just open the doors because the pressure will equalize.

  1. Gun Attack

If someone ever threatens you with a gun, keep an eye contact with that person. Also, keep talking to that person and tell it what actions you will be doing next.

Never turn your back on the person that may kill you with a gun. Somehow try to hit that person with something or try to take away that person’s gun.

  1. Edible Food

If you ever find yourself lost in the woods, you will need to eat there to survive. However, not every food in the woods is edible.

But, there are ways to find out is the food in the woods edible. Eat a small piece of food you think is edible. If the food has bitter taste and odd smell, it isn’t edible.

  1. Chlorine Gas Attack

The chances are minimal that you will ever encounter a chlorine gas attack. However, if that happens, you have slim chances of survival. However, there is one way to save your life.

You won’t need a gas mask to survive such a gas attack. You will only need a handkerchief in which you will breathe in and out.

  1. Break Out of a Zip Tie

If you find your hands bound with a zip tie, tie the laces on your wrists and constantly move your hands back and forth as if you are riding a bicycle.
