GROTON, CT - It's a thought many of us have as we board a plane: if this flight crashes into the water, could I survive?
Survival Systems USA is a place that prepares people for just such an experience - in a very real way.
The company runs a course that uses extremely realistic simulations to teach people how to survive a water crash: how to jump into freezing water, stay warm, get on a raft, deal with a helicopter rescue.
They even drop students into a pool while they're strapped inside an airplane "cabin."
Fox 8's Melissa Reid took this survival course...learning how to buckle up, brace for impact....and keep calm.
