    Video: This info may save your life

    This video contains very good information about how to escape from a vehicle if being trapped in water. It is one of my worst nightmares, as I can't swim. Hopefully none of us will need this info, but it never hurts to know this, and pass along to our loved ones. http://www.thisbuzz.com/this-is-the-...life-some-day/

    Thank you for sharing this information. I was not aware this is the procedure that should be followed.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Thanks for that information. Generally when cars are submerged the electronics go out & you can't get the windows down. That's where a Res Q Me keychain escape tool will be a necessity. It can cut through a seat belt & break windows. I don't have one but really need to get one.

    We all have the "window breakers" in our cars. Gave them as stocking stuffers a few years back. Hope to never have to use them!

    The headrests are also made to come out of the seats and used to break the windows with the metal ends.

    It's fast thinking that will save your life. Every child four and older should know how to get out of a booster seat and unhook a baby car seat straps for the younger child. My four year old grand practices getting his two year old brother loose from his car seat. In fact that's his job when both are in the car together when getting out of the car.
    I love my life!
