Do You Know What To Do In the Event of An Emergency Evacuation of An Airliner?
Having represented a number of victims who survived the aircrash of UAL Flight 232, I found a common comment from each of them who said, "I wish I had listened more attentively to the flight attendant as she was giving the pre-flight instruction."
No matter how often you fly, I recommend that you take time out to listen and watch the flight attendants in the aisle (or video if provided) giving you instructions on what to do in the event of an emergency during flight. Also, take a look at the safety card. The more people fly, the more most tend to "zone out" and ignore the pre-flight attendant's instructions.
I take note that when I'm flying, the pilots who are dead heading are taking time out to listen to the flight attendants and also reading the safety cards.
Now watch the following video of what actually happened on this horrific flight. A number of victims were able to walk away from this crash; but a number died as well.
Having represented over 16 individuals (and families) involved in this terrible trajedy, I take note of how important it is to prepare yourself in the event of an emergency on board an airliner.
To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
