12 Survival Tips That Could Save Your Life! Life is unpredictable! You never know what can happen at any time.

There are times when you find yourself in situations that are confusing and you don't know what to do.

So it is wise to be at least somewhat aware! Here are some survival tips that could save your life one day!

#1: The Bystander Effect

Is a strange psychological phenomenon that occurs when an accident occurs in a public place with many people around.

People stand by and watch instead of helping because they don't want to get involved when they think someone else can help, and so everyone backs off.

This is called the 'bystander effect'. If you find yourself in a situation like this, don't call out to as many people for help as possible, but point to one person and plead with them.

This increases your chances of getting help and makes people more likely to recognize you.

#2: Car Parked At Night

If you're heading to an empty parking lot, especially at night or when the area isn't particularly safe, walk away with the car keys in hand.

This will reduce the time it takes you to get in and start your car, thus reducing your risk of any surprise attack. In fact, a key held in your fist and stretched between your fingers can also serve as a makeshift weapon in any emergency.

#3: Swarm of Bees

If you ever find yourself being chased by a swarm of bees, don't jump into the lake. Even though you've seen it in the cartoons, don't.

Bees will wait above the water, ready to attack you. What's worse, if you jump into a body of water, you slow down your movement and you can't even breathe.

You can also swallow a bunch of bees gasping for air. If you're being chased by a swarm of bees, just keep running. They defend their hive in close quarters, so just keep running until they feel they've won and they stop chasing you.

#4: Strangers in Your Car

If a stranger gets into your car and orders you to take him somewhere, crash your car. Yes, it sounds a little crazy, but it's far better than the alternative.

You will no longer be useful to them because the car has broken down and you have drawn attention to them by crashing the car. So at this point the only thing they can do is run.

#5: Being Roof

This usually happens to women. Some jackasses will try to hoodwink you so they can do things to you that you might not want to do, or who knows what else.

There is one way to find out if you are covered. Well… when dissolved in alcohol, the leaves impart a salty/bitter taste.

So if your drink suddenly tastes strange, bitter or different, stop drinking it immediately. Be sure to pour it so that no one else catches it and drinks it.

#6: Escape a The Sinking Car

In this situation, you have to be quick! Start by rolling down the windows instead of opening the door. 

It is very difficult to open the door against the water pressure and it also allows a lot of water into the vehicle which will only speed up the sinking process.

You will have about 30 seconds to a minute until the water is below the passenger side windows. Then, the water pressure will force the window against the door frame, making it nearly impossible to roll down.

Since most vehicle windows these days are electronically controlled, the circuits will short out before you even have a chance to roll them down.

If this happens, you will need a tool to open the window. Two of the most popular are the Life Hammer, which has a hardened steel point to help pry open the window, and the ResQMe Keychain, which uses a spring-loaded mechanism to shatter the glass.

Make sure these tools are within reach, or you'll never reach them in time. If you are unable to roll down or break the window, you still have a small chance of escape.

After the car is filled with water, the pressure will equalize and you will be able to open the door. However, this would be quite difficult to do as you would have to hold your breath in a highly stressful situation.

#7: Save Yourself from Choking

If you're choking and no one is around, you can actually perform the Heimlich maneuver on yourself! Place your fist above your navel as you hold your first with the other hand.

Lean on a chair or counter and push your fists up toward you.

#8: Wait at a Green Light

Try to give yourself 2-3 seconds before going through that green light, especially if it's at a busy intersection.

A large percentage of fatal car accidents occur because some drivers wanted to run a red light. Waiting those precious few seconds ensures you don't take that risk.

#9: Sharp Objects In Wounds

Medical experts say that you should not use knives or other sharp objects in wounds. It sure sounds uncomfortable, but in the case of a knife, if you've been stabbed, don't pull the knife out because it actually stops the bleeding.

To further reduce the bleeding, tie a cloth around the area until medical help arrives.

#10: Getting Lost On a Hike

Hiking in the wilderness can be a great way to relax and get away from it all. You enjoy fresh air, nature, beautiful scenery, and it's good for your body too.

But, if you ever get lost out there, it can be scary. I'm sure you've seen those TV shows where people get lost in a big scene. They literally lose their sense of direction!

If this ever happens to you, try to find a river or a fence. River streams always flow downstream and will always join a larger body of water that can help you regain your bearings.

If you find a fence, it usually means that buildings and roads are nearby and should lead to civilization. 

#11: Stop Using Your Cell Phone While Walking

This may sound obvious, but there's some serious science behind it. According to some health and safety consultants, walking and using your cell phone puts too much stress on your brain, even if you think you're smarter than others.

Using your phone while walking can cause you to lose track of your surroundings and lead to an accident.

This is especially true if you're texting on the go! So the next time you need to use your phone in the middle of the road, I suggest you stop first and then use it.

Not in the middle of the road, of course, but pull over so you're not blocking traffic or find a bench where you can rest, focus on that phone call or text and once you're done, You can resume your walk. 

#12: That Gut Feeling

If you sense that something is not right with a person, situation or place, you are probably right. Don't ignore these instincts.

Don't be afraid to be rude in these situations, just let it go. By knowing these simple tips, you can help save your life or someone else's.
