Consiglio: Always keep these things in mind to avoid becoming a victim of a stampede.

Consiglio del giorno che ti può essere utile:

I recently read about the news of 13 people dying in a Peru disco due to a stampede caused by the police raid.

Stampedes are horrifying to say the least and getting caught up in one can be extremely dangerous.

I always try to be very cautious when I am in crowded places, here are some important things that you should keep in mind:

  1. First of all avoid being at any crowded place where the exit options are not sufficient for the crowd.

  2. Stay on your feet.

  3. Conserve Energy, don't push against the crowd, don't yell or scream and don't PANIC.

  4. Use sign language to communicate with those around you (point, wave, even use your eyes)

5.Keep your hands up by your chest, like a boxer – it gives you movement ,protects your chest and allows you to breathe easily even if people are presseing against you.

6.Try to move away from choke points as they are the worst place to be.

  1. Evaluate your surroundings and make sure you know where all the exits are at.

  2. Do not Resist the force of the crowd, rather move diagonally with the flow and that will leave you to the edge of the stampede where its less likely to be stuck at a choke point.

Sorry for any grammatical mistakes, English isn't my first language.
