The Only Way to Survive in a Free Falling Elevator

Is it even possible to survive such a fall?! How to survive in a free falling elevator? Today, we will answer these questions and shares some recommendations from scientists and engineers about what you should and shouldn’t do if you find yourself in a falling elevator. Free falling trapped in a small metal box sounds terrifying. Even the thought of such a grim situation gives us the chills. And you have probably wondered what you would do if the elevator cable suddenly snapped. TIMESTAMPS Don’t jump 0:44 Don’t stand up straight 1:39 Lie flat on the floor 2:12 Betty Lou Oliver 3:24 SUMMARY - There is a popular misconception that if you jump a moment before the elevator hits the bottom, you will somehow decrease the impact on your body. You might hurt yourself badly if you hit the ceiling with your head. Jumping is not worth the risk at all. - Standing up straight and simply hoping for the best is also not the best idea. Nothing good is coming. What is coming is a weight ten times larger than that of your own body dropping on your legs at the moment of the impact. - Your best bet would be to lie flat on your back. This position will help you distribute the force of the impact across your entire body. Yes, your small thin bones will probably snap anyway (though it mostly depends on how high up you were when the cable snapped). - Betty Lou Oliver, who works as an elevator operator for the Empire State building, holds the world record for surviving the longest elevator fall in history! She traveled 79 floors in a falling elevator and stayed alive. - Elevator accidents happen extremely rarely. More people die when they step in empty shafts or get stuck between the elevator doors. So, watch your step and don’t hurry — you’ll catch the next one.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Flight Attendants

How to Get the Most out of Your Flight. Maybe you love to travel by plane, or maybe just the idea makes you clench your teeth in terror, but we bet you didn’t know all of this. It’s time to ask the experts who fly all the time: flight attendants to reveal their secrets and tips on how to make your flight more comfortable and safe. Many of us consider ourselves experts at navigating departures, flights, and takeoffs almost as naturally as we get out of bed in the morning or take a walk around the block. But however experienced you are, learning some of these insights about airplanes can make your flights more pleasant. It might also make the experience better for the pilot and crew of flight attendants who have to do this all day, every day. TIMESTAMPS All-male crews are a thing of the past. 1:21 Not waiters, but captain’s assistants! 2:36 The crew is just as frustrated as you are. 3:25 Don’t sleep during takeoff or landing. 4:05 Sleeping when cruising is a great idea. 5:13 Chicken or fish? 5:47 Follow instructions — or else! 6:42 Sit toward the back. 7:45 Rely on your flight attendants. 8:49 Flying tips straight from the pros! 9:18 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -Before 1930, the crews of airplanes were 100% male, including the pilot, ground crew, and all of the flight attendants. Over a hundred years, the gender roles reversed, and many now see this as a primarily female profession. -In reality, a flight attendant’s job is to assist the captain by managing the cabin during a flight. -Airline crews are typically paid by the hour, but only the hours spent in actual flight are paid. A flight doesn’t actually start until the door is closed. -Experienced flight attendants recommend avoiding falling asleep on take-off, descent, and landing. Not only will you not be attentive during these dangerous parts of the flight, but it can impinge on your comfort. -Attendants encourage passengers to sleep on night flights, deliberately delaying food service to let people fall asleep. -Some flight attendants use a trick to get more people to choose the fish: they say that the fish is a “special” from the “chef,” reserved exclusively for this flight. -Some airlines supply their flight attendants with tasers to deal with passengers who don’t comply. Safety is very important on planes, and they’ve got to be able to control a situation. -Especially if you’re a nervous flier, you’ll be pleased to know that the back seats tend to be far safer, statistically speaking. -Flight attendants are trained in first aid and CPR. They can treat small wounds, assess symptoms of common traveler illnesses, and even deliver babies in-flight. -Never take your shoes off on a plane. Lots of passengers use fold-down tables for all sorts of things: as writing surfaces, pillows (with drool-catching action!), or places to change a baby. Use antibacterial disinfectant, and clean the tray for your own safety. Flight attendants have very little free time during a flight. If you’re thirsty, rather than pressing the call button, consider going up to them to ask for a glass of water.
