Passers-by rescue children from submerged vehicle in Utah river

http://www.lifesaving.com/general-interest/spotlight-rescues/passer...

Lifesaving Resources, LLC advocates that all drivers need to PLAN for, TRAIN for, and acquire the RESOURCES required to safely and effectively MANAGE a submerged vehicle incident.  LifeHammer type devices or spring-loaded window punches should be secured in all vehicles for use during a submersion incident.  Lifesaving Resources advocates the escape and survival procedures of PO-GO or SOS-GO.

PO-GO

P = Punch open seat-belt release

O = Open window or door

GO = Get Out!

SOS-GO

S = Stay calm and Survey situation

O = Open window or door

S = Release Seatbelt

GO = Get Out
