If You Ever Get Trapped In A Sinking Car, This Simple Trick Will Save Your Life

For many of us, getting trapped in a car sinking in water is our worst nightmare. Just the thought of it sinks my stomach into depths of anxiety I never even knew existed.

Thankfully, I feel so much better after learning this life-saving trick to use if I ever get trapped in a car sinking in water. Had the 400 people who die each year in the United States, because their cars are trapped in water, knew of this trick, they’d probably still be alive today.

Statistics show most of us are doing the exact opposite of what needs to be done in such a situation — we roll up the window and hope for an air bubble or call 9-1-1.

REMEMBER THIS: You have to get out of the car before it sinks, which means speed is the KEY to saving your life. You only have the first 30-60 seconds to take your seatbelt off, open the window and then get out. It’s simple, but crucial.

If you have children in the car with you, unstrapping the oldest child first and the youngest last is your best chance of safely escaping.

Since time is critical to our survival in this situation, it’s clear to see why calling 9-1-1 or rolling up the window isn’t a successful way to get out of a car sinking in water.
