What to do if a building collapsed,Triangle of Life

Though Malaysia is not within the earthquake zone, you may be staying in a different country when an earthquake strikes. This lesson is important. It was first proposed by Doug Copp - the Rescue Chief and Disaster Manager of the American Rescue Team International  (ARTI), the world's most experienced  rescue team.
He had crawled inside 875 collapsed buildings, worked with rescue teams from 60 countries, founded rescue teams in several countries, and he is a member of many rescue teams from many countries. He was the United Nations expert in Disaster Mitigation (UNX051 -UNIENET) for two years.  He have worked at every major disaster in the world since 1985, except for simultaneous disasters.
His theory has been successfully proven. When an earthquake occurs and you happen to stay in a hotel, find a triangle of life near the outer walls of the hotel. That way, when they start digging, the chances are they will get to you first. You don't want to be buried in the middle of a rubble heap.

: without listening or reading, simply by looking at these photos, you can learn more than in a thousand words about how to protect yourself…
Real Demonstration of the "Triangle of Life"

Left: The triangle of life                      Right: Wrong area

If you are inside a vehicle, come out and sit or lie down next to it. If something falls on the vehicle, it will leave an empty space along the sides. See below
