How to Survive a Plane Crash: What to Do Before, During, and After
Low to the ground
In a smoke-filled plane, some sources suggest you keep low to the floor as there's likely to be less smoke at floor level. Wrong. The chances are you'll simply be trampled, crushed or suffocated under luggage, falling bodies and the rush of other passengers. Keep your head down, mouth and nose covered, but stay on two feet. Climb over seat backs if gangways are blocked.
