An attack in an elevator or staircase can happen to anyone. According to statistics, a large number of attacks, robberies, rapes, contract killings take place in our own entrance and in the elevator, when we already feel safe. How not to become a victim in the stairwell and elevator?
Be careful when entering the entrance. When we get closer to home, then we feel in imaginary safety. In confined spaces, hidden from prying eyes, there is a high risk of being attacked. It can be a planned crime or an accidental one. Be as focused and ready for any situation as possible. Get your headphones out and don't look at your phone. Make sure that no strangers follow you by using the open door. Prepare the keys and the chip for the door in advance. Call your loved ones that you are entering the entrance.
Avoid dangerous situations
Don't get into an elevator with a stranger. Don't wait for a stranger to ride in the elevator together. Do not sit down with those who hold the door to wait for you. Even if you know the person, it is better to avoid a situation where you are alone together. You don't know enough people and their psychological state. Pretend that you want to check your mail in the mailbox, you get a phone call, change your mind about going, or think about going up the stairs. Never get into an elevator with a stranger, let alone a company!
How to behave in an elevator?
If you were not alert enough and ended up in the elevator with a stranger, then concentrate. Let a stranger press the first button of the elevator, and he himself rise higher. Do not turn your back or look away when you press the button. Look closely at the stranger with peripheral vision. Press your back against the wall and do not turn it to a potential enemy. Keep your hands at the level of your abdomen in order to react in time to a possible fall.
How do I get out of the elevator?
Your floor and the stranger hasn't come out yet? On your floor, get out quickly and try not to turn your back on the stranger. Come face him, ready to react to the attack. This will prevent him from grabbing or hitting from behind.
How to behave in the event of an attack in an elevator or staircase?
Try to negotiate and agree with the demands of the enemy while the elevator is moving. It is better to start a fight when the doors open, but this is a recommendation, not a rule.
When danger is great, hit first. Hit in the groin, jaw, Adam's apple. If you are pressed against the wall, then press your fingers into your eyes, hit your ears and other vulnerable points. Don't be silent, but shout to get people's attention. Be careful when running out of the elevator or staircase. The adversary may start pursuing or may be with an accomplice. Do not give an opportunity to get into the apartment after you.
Defending your life, do not be careful with the attacker. At this moment, it is decided which of you should survive. Health, honor and life are at stake. The one who is more decisive and ruthless wins. An attack in an elevator or staircase can happen to anyone, but your safety and life depend only on you.
