Following our discussion on air, here are some interesting videos that show the reality of being submerged in a vehicle, how it sinks and some very valuable advice on how to get out.
This useful video also shows the correct drill established by actual practice and even demonstrates the ResQMe tool in action. It’s interesting to note how quickly you have to act especially as this is a scenario likely to have taken you by surprise. Well worth rehearsing on dry land.
This is also worth watching if only to see how much more effective it is to get out of the car as soon as you can via the windows. http://youtu.be/rdqrduxK9To

Yup – have a tool to break the windows!
Keep breathing folks.
