Earlier this month, the US Coast Guard
and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue recovered the bodies of two women who died when their car fell off the back of a ferry to Fisher Island, prompting many Florida rescue workers
to focus on teaching drivers and passengers how to escape from a submerged vehicle, especially when our state includes almost every body of water possible from oceans and lakes to rivers and retention ponds.
Experts recommend having at least one of two very special tools in your vehicle at all times. Either a spring-loaded window smasher or one that looks like a hammer, allowing drivers and/or passengers to strike at the corner of a window, creating the opening of an escape hatch, should the vehicle be in the midst of sinking.
