  • Recent international crime statistics that we just invented state that 98% of all people

  • will one day be locked in the trunk of a car.

  • Whether you're simply picking a great place for hide and seek, or have run afoul of the

  • mob and find yourself on the way to the docks to sleep with the fishes, knowing how to escape

  • from the trunk of a car can save your life.

  • It might not sound like a big deal, so you're locked in the trunk of a car- or the boot,

  • as our cousins across the pond may call it.

  • So what?

  • Eventually someone will come along and find you, and in the meantime you got a great place

  • to take a mid-work power nap without interruptions.

  • Well, getting locked in a car is dangerous to you just like it's dangerous to our furry

  • friends- or small children.

  • It's 70 degrees out, a perfectly pleasant autumn day with a cool breeze.

  • You're just going to pop into the store for a bit, your pooch and/or little brother will

  • be perfectly fine in the car alone.

  • To ensure their safety, you're rolling the windows up- after all, there's crazy people

  • out there looking to hurt pets and/or young children.

  • Now you know better, so you wouldn't do this in summer time, but a cool 70 (21 C) degrees

  • is barely t-shirt weather anymore.

  • Congratulations, you just killed your favorite pet, because even at 70 degrees if the sun

  • is out, your car can heat up to over 110 (43 C) degrees.

  • That's because much like our planet, cars are greenhouses, and just like global warming

  • will kill us all in the end whether you believe in it or not, car warming can be just as lethal

  • only on an exponentially faster timeline.

  • In just thirty minutes your car can go from a pleasant 70 degrees to 104 degrees (40 C),

  • and in an hour it can top out at 113 degrees (45 C).

  • For you, stuck in the trunk of a car, there isn't even the option of breaking open a window,

  • and the darker your car's paint job is, the faster you'll roast to death as dark paint

  • absorbs the sun's heat faster.

  • It's not just heat you'll have to worry about, because while trunks may not be airtight,

  • they can quickly fill with your carbon monoxide, leading to asphyxiation.

  • This was the fate of two small children on August 27, 2000 who climbed into the trunk

  • of their mom's car along with their pet kitten, and were found dead by their older sibling.

  • Even more tragically, in 1998 four children died in one trunk incident, when two boys,

  • ages 3 and 5, and two girls, ages 2 and 6, all climbed into their family car's trunk

  • after their father left it open while removing a dead battery.

  • They quickly began to suffer from asphyxiation and heat exhaustion, and tragically the parents

  • drove the car around for an hour with the children dying in the trunk as they desperately

  • searched for them.

  • So it's clear, car trunks are serious business, so you better know how to escape from one-

  • but how?

  • Odds are you're probably in luck nowadays if you get stuck in a trunk, as nearly every

  • vehicle dating back to 2002 features a glow-in-the-dark handle that can be pulled for a quick escape.

  • These were installed in response to the growing rash of incidents of children getting accidentally

  • locked in trunks, but also to help victims of kidnapping to free themselves.

  • In Alabama in 2017, a woman escaped from the trunk of her car after being kidnapped.

  • She waited until her kidnapper stopped for gas and then popped the emergency release,

  • fleeing for her life.

  • Incredibly, this is far from a rare occurrence, with another victim in Alabama literally leaping

  • out of a trunk while the vehicle was in motion and fleeing for her life

  • Clearly Alabama has a serious kidnapping problem so all our Crimson Tide fans should pay special

  • attention to this video.

  • But what if your vehicle doesn't have this safety release mechanism, or perhaps your

  • kidnapper is also an Infographics fan and removed it before the kidnapping.

  • Well in that case, you can still free yourself by finding the trunk release cable which runs

  • from the front of the vehicle to the rear.

  • Typically you can find that cable along the driver's side of the vehicle, and it will

  • likely be along the floor, possibly under the false floor of the trunk hiding the spare

  • tire compartment.

  • Tugging the cable towards the front of the car with enough force will make the latch

  • pop open, but you may need tools in order to pull that off.

  • Maybe your kidnapper removed the emergency release hatch, and you're having no luck finding

  • the trunk release cable.

  • A last option will be to pry the trunk open from inside, but for that you'll need tools.

  • Search for screwdrivers, pliers, hammers, anything that can give you some leverage,

  • and then simply get to work on any gap you can find on the actual trunk door.

  • The latch won't hold up for long against such force, and with a bit of muscle power you'll

  • be able to pop it open and make your escape to freedom.

  • What if the trunk is a no-go though?

  • You can't find tools, or you've pried and pried and no luck.

  • Well, you're not helpless yet.

  • It's time to start thinking about exiting the trunk through the car itself.

  • Brace yourself and begin kicking at the back seats.

  • Most cars have back seats that fold down so you can fit long items inside the trunk, and

  • the switches that hold the seats in place are nothing more than plastic.

  • A minute or two of strong kicks will bring the seat down and you one step closer to freedom.

  • Of course that's probably not wise if your kidnapper is still inside the car, in which

  • case you're going to have to forget about escaping and start thinking of ways to get

  • noticed.

  • Feel around for the wires that run to the brake lights and push against them.

  • With enough force you can pop the brake light off and stick an arm through the hole, signaling

  • to bystanders that you need help.

  • If you can't force the light out entirely, then rip the wires out.

  • By doing so you increase the odds that a law enforcement patrol will spot the vehicle and

  • pull it over for faulty brakes.

  • Lastly, if all the above fails, it may simply be best to make as much noise as you can every

  • time the vehicle comes to a stop.

  • Sure, your kidnapper may threaten you with violence if you don't shut up, but let's get

  • serious- nobody throws another person in the trunk of a car because they're taking them

  • for ice cream.

  • If your kidnapper shoved you in the trunk, you can be assured that no matter what he

  • or she might say, your ultimate fate is a deep dark hole and a bucket filled with lotion

  • that you're encouraged to put on your skin or else you get the hose again.

  • What we're saying is, no matter what your kidnapper says, if you don't want to become

  • a stylish skin suit, make as much noise as possible every time you can and hopefully

  • get discovered.
