A survival guide to understand what to do when thrown out to an altitude of 10,000 meters

ByEdward Allen Lim

I am investigating an airplane accidentBureau of Aircraft Accidents ArchivesAccording to the report, there were 15,463 aircraft accidents between 1940 and 2008, there were 119,834 victims, and they survived from the altitude of 10,000 feet (about 3000 meters) further There are only 42 people surveyed. A survival guide to survive about how it will be saved if it falls from an altitude of 35,000 feet (about 10,000 meters) without a parachute by any chance is released.

How to Survive a 35,000-Foot Fall - Plane Crash Survival Guide

In this survival guide, "When you get on an early morning airplane and you sleep with your wait after take off, when you wake up with the cold air and the horrible sounds around you, the plane you were riding is not cleaned at all, On the premise that it had fallen from 10,000 meters ", while it falls, it will tell you the situation and measures to take.

· AM 6:59:00, altitude 35,000 feet (about 10,000 meters)
So, the situation begins with "falling from about 10,000 meters altitude". Compared to dropping from the balcony of the hotel drunk, we can afford a much better time but because the oxygen needed for breathing is not enough, we lost consciousness and lost consciousness, at least 1 mile (About 1600 meters) will continue to fall like flying shells.

Even if it is thrown out of an airplane and is unlikely to survive, it is important to understand the surrounding situation. There are two possibilities of falling from an airplane. The first one is a thing that one falls from an airplane and is able to protect the body and there is no way to loosen the speed at all. The second case is when you are caught by the wreckage of the airplane and become a "league rider". It is a coined word by Jim Hamilton of an amateur historian who is studying about free fall from the sky. Mr. Hamilton studied every situation where free fall from the sky could occur,DatabaseIs created.

According to Mr. Hamilton's analysis, when thrown into the air due to an airplane accident, there are many cases where it falls with some kind of airplane debris. If you can become a retreated rider, you will have the advantage that you can relieve the impact at the time of falling and landing by getting caught by the debris of the aircraft. In 1972, a small jet aircraftMcDonnell Douglas DC-9However, an accident happened over the Czechoslovakia during the flight. Vesna Vulovic, a flight crew member, fell from an altitude of 33,000 feet, but his body was caught between a seat, a wagon for meal distribution, an airplane fragment, and other crewmen and landed on the snow, so life was It was safe.

The closer to the ground, the more the body will be pulled by gravity, the falling speed will be faster. However, since the air resistance is larger than the fall speed, when the gravity and the air resistance become equal, the acceleration stops. Depending on such factors as the height and weight of the falling person, as well as the air density, if a human falls from a height of 1,500 feet (about 460 meters), the falling speed is on average 120 miles per hour (about 193 km ). When you throw yourself from a skyscraper, the time to reach the ground is about 12 seconds, but if you drop from an altitude of 10,000 meters, there will be some margin of fall time of about 3 minutes.

· AM 7:00:20, altitude of 22,000 feet (about 6700 m)
When getting down to an altitude of 6700 m, the oxygen in the air will be enough for breathing, so consciousness should return. There is still another two minutes to reach the ground.

Mr. Hamilton said that it is important to have a feeling that "I am not falling to die but landing without fail". Many people who survived falling from the sky, the skylights of the train, the mountain of the hay, the bushes etc are cushioned and survived. Trees are not as bad as cushions, but branches may stab the body. In addition, there are also examples that survived by hitting the body against electric wires and bouncing back. While snowy fields and marshes are suitable for cushioning, liquids are less compressible and inappropriate as cushions, so it seems not good to landing on lakes, oceans, etc. For example, it falls to the sea as much impact as colliding with the sidewalk, so the body will crumble into pieces.

The next thing to consider is the attitude of the fall. Imagine the attitude of skydiving, spread your arms and legs, turn your belly towards the ground, round your back and head upwards. With this attitude the air resistance increases and it makes it easier to move your body as you want in the air. But do not let the body relax.

Also, we need to think about posture at landing. In the document of the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) issued in 1963, "It is written that aligning the legs, turning the heel towards the sky, holding the knees increases the survival rate." In addition, it is said that survival rate will rise by accumulating acrobatics and wrestling training.

In the case of falling into the water, it seems that the knife will be stabbed in the body at the moment of arrival of water. There are two ways of entering from the legs and a method of holding both hands tightly and entering from the hands. Either way, it is important to take a posture that spreads the falling body to the limit of landing. Also, regardless of where you land, it is important to defend your head and land from your hands or feet. The most common cause of death from falling fall is due to cranial damage. If you can not avoid landing from the head, protecting the head and back of the head by sacrificing the face will lead to a higher survival rate.

· AM 7: 02: 19, altitude 1000 feet (about 300 meters)
Cutting 1000 feet to the ground, the remaining time is about 6 seconds. Let's focus on preparing for "landing". There is a high possibility of statistically surviving in the case of an airplane crew member, a child, or a military aircraft flying. In the past 40 years or more, at least 12 cases have occurred in cases where only one survivor was a civilian aircraft accident. Four of the survivors were occupants of the plane and seven were children under the age of 18. FAA says, "Children under 4 years old are more flexible in skeleton than adults,Muscle toneThere are few subcutaneous fat, so it is easy to protect visceral organs ". Besides, people with small body are less likely to be scratched by fragments of airplane, and those with lighter weight have the advantage of being able to relax the falling speed due to weak gravity influence.

· AM 7: 02: 25, altitude 0 ft (0 m), above ground
We will take the countermeasures we have described so far, and we will have the moment of conflict. Luckily if the trauma is small and the life is saved, please suck even a cigarette but rejoice survival.

Yuliana Kepke, one of the fortunate survivors, was riding the Lockheed L-188 Electra which was aiming for the city Iquitos in the northeast of Peru from Christmas Eve in 1971 and Lima in Peru. When Mr. Kekeke, who was supposed to have been flying over the Amazon, noticed, the plane crashed in the middle of the jungle and the mother sitting next to him died.LANSA Peru Airlines 508 flight crash).

At this time, Mr. Kepke, age 17, remembered his advice from a biologist, his father, and began to follow the veins to find a village. It is said to have survived only with candy and dirty water that had carried away the crocodile and stingray with a stick and progressed in the jungle. Kepke who continued walking the jungle for ten days was found safely in the group that had been absent from the timber harvesting where he was resting at the cottage along the river. Mr. Keppke says, "I was able to leave the accident site as soon as I made the right choice, I was not afraid because I knew how to go through the forest and river." Later, this survival was "Miraculous poetryIt has become a movie.

The probability of encountering an airplane accident is overwhelmingly lower than accidents of other transportation agencies, but if you remember this survival guide in a corner of your head it might be useful in case of emergency.
