Vehicle safety. You may have followed the story of the three college girls who went missing while on a stargazing expedition in North Dakota.
They were later discovered in ten feet of water hidden by tall grass at the bottom of a pond. Authorities say they probably drove straight into the pond because they were unfamiliar with the area and couldn't see in the dark.
When I think about 10 feet of water, it doesn't seem like much. But when a car is submerged the whole situation changes. It is important that you know exactly what to do should this ever happen. There is no room for error.
The moment you enter the water your mind is racing and you panic as you reach for the seat belt. The car will begin to sink and tilt vertically because of the weight of the engine. Water will begin to rush in. The most important thing to do is NOT follow the bubbles. Air is escaping through the trunk because the car is sinking head first and will likely turn upside down.
Remember to break a window first! Create an escape path immediately. If you don't, you will have to wait until the car is almost fully submerged and pressure has equaled out. Then try lowering the window, breaking it with your seat belt or brace yourself for kicking it out.
With this Emergency Hammer, you have a glass breakage hammer and a seat belt cutter all in one.
The floor is yours!
