In principle, this kind of thing gives one a general idea of how to react to this situation, which is good; but if it were actually happening I think most people would have to let their instincts take over and just do what feels right for them....kind of like an earthquake...you can plan all you want and memorize all the things you SHOULD do but so many factors are unpredictable...one would just have to act on the spot and hope the right decisions are made.
