Survival Guide of Crowd Crush

1) WHEN YOU ENTER A VENUE, MAKE NOTE OF THE EXITS

If you are attending a concert or large event, make sure you make note of where the emergency exits are when entering. Once it gets too crowded, the main exit may not be the most viable option.


2) LEARN HOW TO WATCH CROWD DENSITY

This may be the most important step in the thread. Once crowd density reaches 6 people per square meter or more, it becomes very dangerous and you may not be able to get out anymore. Prevention is key.


3) UNDERSTAND WHERE CROWD CRUSH HAPPENS

Most crowd crush deaths occur in small spaces such as alleyways, moshpits, or exit hallways of venues. This is why it's best to leave early and not wait for things to get dangerous since others may get the same idea and crush at the exit.


4) ALERT PEOPLE

Since crowd crushes occur in loud environments, people outside the crush often have no idea what's happening. If you are at an organized event and notice a crowd crush, get up high. Alert security and event organizers to stop the music and make everyone aware.


5) MAKE SPACE AROUND YOUR CHEST

If you are stuck in the crowd and feel its density increasing, make space around your chest with your arms. Pining your arms to your sides or above your head leaves your chest open to being compressed. ARM UP!


6) DO NOT TAKE OFF BACKPACK

Your first instinct may be to make more space by removing a bulky backpack and putting it on the floor. This is a huge hazard. People being pushed into it may trip and case a pileup.


7)GO WITH THE FLOW

Once the crowd reaches 8-9 people per square meter, those inside can't move freely and the crowd behaves like a liquid. You will feel yourself being moved in different directions, but it's important you don't fight it. This clip demonstrates one of these waves.


8) DO NOT SCREAM AND PUSH

If you begin acting panicked, hostile, and inconsiderate of those around you, it will become contageous. In this situation, pushing one person can lead to a horrible chain reaction. Again, staying calm and moving with the crowd is the safest choice.


9) DO NOT FALL

This is pretty intuitive, but it's importance must be emphasized. Your top priority once the crowd crush starts is staying upright. Once you fall down, people will fall ontop of you or climb you. You won't be able to get back up.


10) AVOID WALLS

Most people who asphyxiate in crowd crushes are pushed against solid objects like floors, barriers, femces, or walls. Do your best to avoid becoming trapped against walls or even the back of someone trapped against a wall to increase your chances of survival


11) HELP YOUR NEIGHBORS ONLY IF YOU CAN 

Access the risk first. If someone is slipping down and you are in the position to help them you should, but if you are unstable and someone is yanking on you trying to get up, it could result in both of you falling.


12) AFTERMATH

When the crowd thins there may be people on the floor. Since these things usually result from lack of event planning, there may not be enough medical personel to help right away. In this case, volunteers save lives. The next parts are about how and when to provide CPR.


13) MAKE SURE IT IS SAFE

Access the situation around you. Crowd surges have natural lulls and you must be certain you will be safe and that you will have the space to help someone before you decide to go check on them.

Terrarium Workshop @ Office

Class started with choosing the jar and simple briefing by the trainer. Letak rocks, soil, plant, and moss. This jar i chose apparently requires 1-2 weeks once to water the plant. Yang jenis open punyer kene water every day. I was so happy because low maintenance gituh.

After one week, unfortunately the plant died on me. Yang survived only the moss. Adiba punyer maintain hidup. Lol! Where did i go wrong?! Both plant stayed indoor with same temperature. The reason i could think of is i should wipe the wap2 kat the glass. Teruks kene bahan ngan colleagues how i killed my plant -.- sis redha!

Snippets of Zafeer as a Std 1 Kid - Part I

Nobody’s Home

Yesterday i was about 10 minutes late and Zafeer reached home first. Benda yang paling nak avoid, dia buzz the bell and nobody’s at home 🥹 I drive sehabes laju but jam nak laju cemana…almost sampai on time (at least before him) but stucked in the traffic kat roundabout pulak! 

Saw him tengah pusing2 depan lift unsure where to go. When he saw my car masuk parking, he ran over to cerita dia dah naik atas, picit loceng sekali, turun balik and waited at the lobby. Sempat selit disclaimer yang dia cool je (katanya). His expression was otherwise pucat, panic and worried. Kesiannnn sangat! 

In spite of that, he was definitely brave and calm in that situation. He did what we discussed in the event jadik camnie, about safety and all. 


Playdate

Zafeer arranged a playdate with his classmate. He said we’ll go to H***n’s house at U12. Now pukul 11 kan, we go at 8 ok.

Quite difficult to explain that we can’t simply knock on his friend’s house when the mom didn’t invite us over. Not too mention the timing too, i’m confused!


Weekend @ Lalaport, KL

We went to Lalaport dalam bulan raya hence the raya decor. Still banyak kedai yang blah2 hujung belom fully bukak. Banyak jugak eateries, cafes and flagship store.

Singgah jugak Nitori to check out the home decor since asyik lalu my feeds jer. It’s like between muji and ikea. Agak pricey all the barang2 so takde lah kes impulse purchase. Jalan dari depan sampai blakang, banyak yang cantik2 but don’t feel like buying anything.
