  • To escape from a sinking car, you need to be sure you know what to do in advance. Extreme and life-threatening situations give us little or no time to think how to react. Only following certain secret tips will help you save your life and survive at this time. There are some very important steps to be taken in this unfortunate situation.
    You have to remember every second counts as you’ll only have about a minute to do what you should before the car sinks completely underwater. Memorize the sequence: “unfasten the seat belt, lower the window, climb out of the car”. Once you’ve gotten your kids out, leave the car yourself.
    If there’s no way to get out through the window, wait until the car fills completely with water, and then open the door. The rising air bubbles will lead you to the surface.

    -Unfasten your seatbelt and roll down the window as fast as you can.
    -Do not waste your time trying to open the door.
    -Use a special tool or some heavy object with a pointed tip to break the window if you can’t roll it down.
    -Push the kids out of the car first and only than leave it yourself.
    -After some time, you’ll be able to open the door if there’s no way to get out through the window.
    -Follow the rising air bubbles to the surface.
    -Unfasten your seat belt, roll down or break the window, and get out as quickly as you can.

    Hey Guy your head rest may be used to break the the window glass in case you don't know. Also the the car window glass is made in such a way it is easier to be broken from inside.
