We are horrified!
Day after day, week after week, we read the worst.
A young woman of 35 years , Jennifer Wolfe drown after falling into a pond in the United States after being forced off the road by a reckless driver . She called her husband, begging him to find her, because she feared that no one had seen her accident .
Jennifer seemed panicked and which of us would not be.
The door and windows seemed to refuse to open.
Mrs. Wolfe had no rescue tool, and could not free herself from her vehicle. Her husband, James Wolfe, heard the last cries of his wife, the sounds of water and nothing more.
How nowadays, can we remain indifferent, and not react to the drama of Jennifer, a mother of two?
We beg people to become aware that an accident of this type can happen. And when your vehicle is submerged in water not to open the door and the windows of your car, grab a rescue tool to keep your life before it is too late!
Today, we were in tears at the words of the journalist, Briona Arradondo Channel 9 News.
A grieving family, two children drowned in this accident in Tennessee.
Family members, their friends and all of Bledsoe County are in tears after losing two children in the car accident submerged in a pond on Mount Rigsby Monday night.
The car slid off the narrow road and ended its path in a pond, parents rushed to help the children.
Parents had removed a two year old and a one year old without risk, but soon the car to started sinking and it flooded with cold water. Bledsoe County EMS and many other rescuers arrived at the scene at 8:45pm .
The boy, six weeks old, Emoch Einwechter and the little girl of three years, Susan Einwechter, were under water for about 30 minutes and drowned, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol .
We can not remain indifferent to so much drama , it is time that each of us take the time to educate ourselves, teach our children to swim, read the prejudices and advice on road safety.
We responded to the article published by news- presse.com : http://www.news-press.com/article/20140310/NEWS0101/140310001/Firefighters-rescue-driver-from-atop-submerged-vehicle?nclick_check=1
We recently saw the article on your website about the man being rescued while on top of his submerged vehicle. We are so happy he was able to escape. However, we noticed that at the bottom of the article was instructions on how to escape a vehicle if submerged underwater. The tip given was if you are unable to open the windows in time, to let the vehicle fill with water and then attempt to open the door. We wanted to share another practice that is both safer and more efficient for yourselves and your readers. Please see the link attached as it may help to save a life. Thank you so much for your time. Please call or email us with any questions you may have, we would be happy to help. Have a safe day!
Thank you . “
We wanted to remind everyone of the four life-saving steps :
1 . SEAT BELTS (Remove or cut)
2 . SIDE WINDOWS (Open or break)
3 . CHILDREN (From largest to smallest)
4 . EXIT

Question: Does the resqme tool work on all car windows?
Answer: The resqme tool is effective only against clear and tinted tempered glass. Tempered glass is commonly used in rear and side car windows. The resqme tool does NOT work on laminated glass. Laminated windows which are typically used for windshields can also be found on some car models. To check to see what your side windows are made of, locate the sticker on your side windows to see if it is designated as “Tempered” glass. If you are unable to locate the sticker or the information is not understandable, please call your car manufacturer. You can find a list of some vehicles equipped with laminated windows in the US at: http://www.epgaa.com/applications/index.asp. This list is not comprehensive so we recommend contacting your car manufacturer directly.
Since the type of glass on car windows vary between car manufacturers, it is important to know what type is on your vehicle. For further information on what laminated glass windows are, please visit wiseGeek.
