Expert Teaches How to Escape From Zip-ties and Get Yourself Out of a Car Trunk

Even the thought of getting kidnapped can scare the bejesus out of us. The ordeal is frightening and topped with adrenaline; we try forcefully to get out of the situation. Host Jeff Rossen from Today Show explained freeing our hand from Zip-ties. And getting out car trunks is more accessible than we thought.

It all about maintaining that calm within us. Although that’s the last thing we think when locked up inside a car. In the recent episode, Jeff shared an easy trick of getting the Zip-ties out of our hand. The first lesson is to avoid getting aggressive.

If possible, try to move the hands around a bit. As seeing in the dark under immense pressure is difficult.
