You are 40% more likely to survive a commercial plane crash if you sit in the back row instead of the front.
Although the chances of going through a plane crash are slim and not surviving a plane crash is a rarity as well, what can you do to boost your chances of surviving a plane crash. The first thing to start with is to wear clothes and shoes that you can easily move in. The second thing is to sit near the back of the plane if that’s possible. A study conducted by Popular Mechanics looked at every plane crash in the US for the past three decades (which is 20 plane crashes in total). They found that passengers in the rear are 40% more likely to survive a crash than those who are sitting in the front.
