PSA: In an Emergency Civilian Aircraft Landing, Do Not Take Belongings

The May 5th Crash-Landing and fire of Aeroflot SU1492, a Sukhoi Superjet 100, is upsetting news. To me, it is especially so after further reports arrived.

I read of passengers sitting on front rows stopping to open their baggage cases before evacuating, perhaps indirectly leading to an increase in the death toll, 41 on-board passengers killed in the aircraft fire.

I have no intention of calling for any Internet violence against any survivors for what they’ve been claimed to have done, but please, dear readers, if, unfortunately, any of us find ourselves in such a situation where not only our own lives are on the line, please be at least aware of the others, for life’s fleeting, and not everyone gets a choice.
