Life’s pretty easy, isn’t it? Let’s be honest. You get up, drink a coffee, saunter into work, come back, drink a few beers and watch Netflix until you fall asleep. Very rarely will you ever have to fight to survive. Unless that job you have is in the Navy Seals, that is.
Former Navy Seal Clint Emerson is the author of ‘100 Deadly Skills: The SEAL Operative’s Guide’ and in it he gives us loads of tips for, y’know, not dying. And few are more vital and useful than this one here… How to survive if you’re drowning.
Here’s an excerpt: “When an operative is captured in hostile territory, the odds of survival are low. Instead of being taken to trial, he will likely simply be made to “disappear” — which is why operatives practice escaping while wearing undefeatable restraints on hands and feet, both in water and on land.”
“Tied up, thrown into open waters, and left to drown to death, the well-trained operative still has recourse to a few skills that can help extend his life until he is found or reaches solid ground.”
Here’s some specific information on it in pictorial form. It’d take balls and a will to survive to achieve, but hey – it’s better than dying, huh?
Worth knowing. Spread the word.
