Top 6 Life-Saving Hacks for Teenagers
You never know when these circumstances can hit your life, so I recommend you to read these at least once and be mindful of it. The various dangerous situations and the saving tips are as follows:

If you are trapped in a snowy area where there is a lack of water, don’t consume snow directly. Instead, try melting the ice into water and consume the liquid form of ice.
To change from one state to another, a large amount of heat is compensated. Snow, being in the solid configuration of water, will take up heat from your body in the form of latent heat. This will cause your body totally numb. The status may further lead to asphyxia. In acquiring a small amount of hydration, you will be bargaining lots of heat!
#2. The Heimlich Manoeuvre on Yourself

Firstly, make a fist with the hand you are more comfortable and feel stronger, right below the ribcage and above the navel. Fix your fist, right at the diaphragm.
Secondly, drive your fist up and down at the diaphragm area above the stomach.
Thirdly, place the palm of your other hand over the fisted hand and apply force, while moving your fist up and down till the substance gets dislodged from the throat.
Now that you know the way to help yourself out during such circumstances. Go ahead and try it. People often keep on waiting for someone else to come and help, while the others wait for that someone to do something needful. This carelessness has resulted in the loss of life many times. You should stop depending on others for help and take your way out on your own now.
#3. Do Not Pull Out the Sharp Object
If you are stabbed or impaled by a brutal object, do not be tempted enough to pull out the object from your body. It will result in tremendous bleeding! Leave the object in its place and cover the wound to prevent the blood’s overflow. Wait for the medical help to appear or call for one and make the least movement possible.
However, if the object is poisonous, you will be left with no other option than pulling the object out. Wash the wound properly with pure water to cut down the poison that may dwell in the sharp object.
