Can a car headrest be a rescue tool in emergency?
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: It is likely that you have received a message on social media telling you how the headrest of your car's front seat can become an important too in saving your life in emergency.
It goes like this:
It may be possible to break a car window with a removable headrest, but this is an incidental application, and not a deliberate one.
The primary and only function of the headrest is to offer safety and comfort when the car moves, and was never manufactured with an alternative use in mind, that is breaking car windows in emergency.
The message also claims that apart from making the rods of headrest pointed, the window panes are manufactured in such a way that they could be easily broken from inside, but that is also false.
