A Lucky Escape – Someone upstairs Was Looking After that Diver

As you can see the shark was chasing bait and somehow entered the cage while the diver was inside. The shark escaped out the top while the diver hung on like with his life on the bottom of the cage.

SkySaver – Building Escape Backpack

If you live in a ‘High Rise’ building I think this is a great investment. Even this morning there was 7 deaths in an apartment fire which maybe, who knows, one of these backpacks may have saved some lives.
They are not cheap but if your intention is to live in apartments then I think they are a must. Beats jumping.

Survive Crisis No 5 – Someone Is Pointing A Gun At You

“Extreme situations always sound crazy – until you’re in one”

cat-tax-cat-holding-hands-up-gun-pointing-at-him-788789

This is one situation none of us ever want to be in. You think it wont happen to you but you can be blindsided by the unexpected at any place and time.

a. According to Steve Kardian director of the NY Defend University and former police detective “If it’s a robbery, give up the goods immediately.”
Do not challenge them. Treat it like a business deal.
Unless you think you are about to be shot do not go for the gun. Fake an illness like you are about to throw up or have a heart attack. Then get out of there as fast as you can

b. If you hear shots. ‘Believe it’ those shots are probably from a gun not a vehicle back firing. If you have only heart the noise but have not seen the shooter you still have time to run in the opposite direction.
If you have seen the shooter or worse he or she has seen you put something large between you and the shooter. A Car, a Wall, a Tree (large one) anything that will stop a bullet.
If you feel you must run ‘Zig Zag’ it will make it difficult to put you in the line of fire even for an expert.

c. Be Proactive – Plan ahead. If you have to pass through a dark area that gives you the creeps or walk to your car in a dark dingy car park, through a park that is not well-lit.
Make a plan, visualize where you can escape to. Work out an escape route just in case.
Your gut instinct plays a bit part so take notice of it and run like hell if you even suspect someone is following you.

Strategy To Help You Survive A Crisis

Guy Haskell a 30 year EMS veteran and executive director of EMS services in Bloomington Indiana says:– “Extreme situations always sound crazy – until you’re in one.”

Crisis One.’

Your car is in a large Body of Water and sinking. Cars do drive off bridges and get caught in flash floods.

A. Work before you sink As a car sinks outside pressure against the windows and doors will only build. If you submerge it will be almost impossible to open the doors. Electric windows may not work because of a short-circuit. Try open a door or window before th car is completely covered. 

Be prepared for the water that will enter your car. Move fast and get out of the car.

 

B. In a flash flood, use your car – Water in flash floods are generally fast-moving and may not be as deep as a lake so is not going to sink completely. If water slams you car enough that you start moving stay in the car. The car now becomes your boat and protects you from strong currents, mud and any debris that may harm you. In shallow current hopefully the car will bump against something and stop. That will give you a chance to climb out to the roof to escape or signal for help. Use a horn or swing a shirt or towel around to attract attention.

C. Be Prepared – Buy a car escape tool. A combined hammer and knife. One to smash the window and the other to cut the seat belt if it gets jammed. Make sure it is easily accessible  like the seat pocket or glove box.

There is also a gadget for your ignition keys but with the rather tragic  results with some vehicles because of having something heavy on your key chain it is probably not a good idea.
