What not to do in an emergency

The world is full of non-standard situations and therefore you should know the basics of what to do in emergency situations.

1. If a person is electrocuted, do not try to pull him off with your hands - he will take you too. Use non-conductive materials such as dry wood to pull it away from the contact. If there is only one grass nearby, tear it off in a jump (your contact with the ground should not be).

2. When bitten by a poisonous snake (for example, a viper), it is useless to try to suck the poison right through the wound. You must first make a fairly deep incision exactly through the bite site (or preferably two, crosswise). But only then suck blood with poison to your health. A small amount of poison that has entered the stomach is destroyed by gastric juice. Also, do not forget that you should not have any wounds in your mouth. Otherwise it will be unpleasant - he saved the man, but he himself got drunk!

3. If you are inside a car that has fallen into the water, do not try to open the door / window or break the glass - due to the water pressure, nothing will work. It is better to stop panicking (if possible), calmly sit down and wait until the car is completely filled with water, and at the last moment hold your breath and swim out - the pressure will equalize and it will be easy to open the door.

4. If you suddenly hang on a power line - you can only hold on to one wire. if you try to take 2, a potential difference will occur, which will lead to instant frying with a crust.

5. More about electricity: if lightning strikes nearby or the same broken wire is lying around, you need to leave slowly, not placing your legs too far apart, ideally, press your feet and knees to each other and mince with your paws. You will be more whole.

6. During a fire on the lower floors, people on the upper floors often die from smoke suffocation. If there is no way to get out, you need to quickly fill the bath with water and lie in it, so that only your nose is above the water. The fact is that there is always a layer of air above the water surface, approximately three centimeters.

7. No need to check with your hands how hot the car's brake discs are, even in winter.
