How to stay safe in case of stampede?
The recent stampede incident at Mumbai station took 22 lives. Stampedes occur when a large crowd of people start to run under panic or some scare.
The chaos causes some people to fall over and they get crushed under feet or get suffocated.
The situation can become dangerous if there is a single point of entry and exit.
The best way to stay safe in a crowded place is not to fight the crowd but move with the same pace.
In case of stampede try to stay upright and avoid falling over. In case you have fallen down, use your arms to cover the face and chest to make room for breathing.
Keep breathing and try to stay calm, don't yell or scream and save energy.
