Sometimes, other people get the worse because of getting into an accident while finding a way to survive in the middle of the emergency.

An example of this kind of situation is in the event of fire. Some people panic when they hear that the building is on fire. Once they panic, they run around like crazy. In turn, what happens is that, they can trigger stampede or they fall off the stairs from running. Some people do not know where to go, instead of using the fire exits; they use the elevator thinking that they could reach the ground floor sooner. Only to find them trapped when the power is cut off.
