Retrieving luggage before emergency evacuation

Jump to last reply

I can't believe I even wrote that.

Apparently many Asiana passengers collected their bags from the overhead bins (taking care in case the contents had shifted during the crash) before hitting the evacuation slides.

WTF????

One guy was even quoted as grabbing his bags AND THEN his child.

So--heaven forbid--you're on a flight that needs evacuating and folks around you are grabbing for their wheelies, which could cost you your life. What do you do?
