Default Crash survivors were getting their luggage before evacuating

http://www.forbes.com/sites/johngogl...ate-with-bags/

I don't know about you but the only thing worse than being trapped in a crashed airplane would be waiting for some idiotic passenger to grab his rollaway bag before evacuating down the chute.

Personally I think the most moronic thing we engage in as a society is waiting for morons to take their bags out of the moronic overhead bin before getting off the plane when we make it safely to our destination. Let alone if the plane has crashed having to wait for some asshole to get his or her luggage from the overhead compartment.

Let this be a warning to all of you, that if I am on a plane with you and it has crashed, and you obstruct the evacuation procedure because you're too busy getting your overhead luggage from the overhead compartment on the way out the evacuation slide, you'll get your face bounced off my knee when we get to the tarmac.

A special award needs to go to the idiots who grabbed their luggage before their kids on the way down the slide. Great parenting, dad.


Quote:
When seconds can mean the difference between life and death in escaping an aircraft accident, it was startling to see so many photographs from the crash of Asiana Flight 214 at San Francisco International Airport of people carrying out bags, including roll aboards that must have come out of the overhead luggage bins. At least one man interviewed in the New York Times indicated that he grabbed his bags and then his child. In that order. All I can say is that it was very fortunate that the fire was slow to spread.
While aircraft manufacturers like Boeing have done much in the last couple of decades to improve survivability in aircraft accidents by including materials that are fire-retardant, the fact remains that accidents such as this one often result in ruptured fuel lines or fuel tanks. Once aviation fuel spills, the chances are great that it will come in contact with a hot surface like an engine and ignite. Or the fuel could ignite for other reasons, including sparks caused by the fuselage skidding along the tarmac.

Of all the aircraft accidents I have investigated or am familiar with, this is the first where it appears significant numbers of people took their belongings with them in escaping. What impact this had on other passengers and the extent of their injuries will need to be determined by the NTSB. At a minimum, it seems clear to me that a public awareness campaign needs to be launched to ensure that passengers do not impede the evacuation of an aircraft in an emergency. Certainly now that airlines and the FAA are clearly on notice that survivable accidents could be imperiled by passengers wasting time collecting their bags, they need to take action to address this issue before anyone needlessly dies in a survivable accident.

Reading this reminds me of Fight Club, and how materialistic we are as a society these days. "The things you own, end up owning you."

If I'm on that plane I'm reacting like George Costanza at his girlfriends kids birthday party to these people.

Yep. If our plane crash lands and you go to get your bag before you slide down the ramp, I'm going to falcon-punch you and step over your inert body on my way to freedom.

I also heard an ambulance ran over one of the girls that died. This whole thing is just bizarre.

I heard on the radio coming home that this story has been debunked. The girls died when they were thrown from the plane.

As for the people grabbing their carry on items, well no one died as a result of that. The fatalities and injuries were sustained on impact. Furthermore, a lot of the luggage was dislodged by the crash and was blocking some exits, so some of those people may have grabbed their bags to clear the way. I wasn't on the flight, so I'm inclined to cut them some slack, especially after what they went through.

Also, it's a miracle that only 2 people were killed.

Not to make light of it, but you're really not supposed to get out of your seat until you reach the gate and the seat belt sign turned off.

Default Re: Crash survivors were getting their luggage before evacuating

They were just talking about this on the news because photographs showed people evacuating the plane holding their duty-free shopping bags and roll away luggage. There were even pictures of people walking down the runway with their roll away luggage being pulled behind them, just like they were walking in the freaking terminal. Meanwhile the plane was in flames right there.

I mean what the living hell is the problem with people, that you think you need to grab your cartons of cheap cigarettes before you evacuate a crashed airplane????

There is no answer to the question of why there are so many stupid idiots in this world
