What would you do when you are in a crowded place and suddenly there was rioting? Based on the first hand accounts, the best thing to do is to stand still and make a quick observation of what is happening. It is wrong to run immediately for you don’t have a clear view of where to go. After determining the exact location of the riot, move slowly away from it. That’s easy if the rioting is confined to one area. But if it’s a free for all, it would be dangerous to move away for some rioters might run after you. Crawling is the best way to escape. Another way is to play possum by sitting on the ground and not moving at all as if you are injured. More likely the rioters will ignore you.
