You can listen to a short version of the article. If it's more convenient for you, turn on the podcast.

1. Don't try to get into the thick of it

As a rule, in an effort to see "what's going on", people themselves create a crush in which it is difficult to breathe and where no one will see anything except the first rows. In such a situation, it's still impossible to take photos, record video or sound normally — let alone look at something. If there are no seats at a mass event, either come in advance to be closer to the stage, or just quietly stay in the crowd where you can freely stand and move.

2. Do not bend down to pick up what has fallen

If you drop a glove, a camera cover, a keychain, or a child's toy while people are moving, then the best thing you can do is just follow the crowd. Do not try to stop abruptly and pick up a fallen thing: you may be injured or accidentally knocked down.

3. Don't start running after someone or against the crowd

If you see an acquaintance or that someone is already rushing or running away, do not start moving after them. Spontaneous running in a calmly standing or slowly walking crowd (entering a stadium, leaving a concert) can provoke panic and is a favorite technique of those who decided to create riots.

4. Do not give in to the call "all go ahead!" from an unidentified person from the crowd

Only a person from the stage from among the organizers can call for anything from the participants of any organized event. And even then, think about the order, request, or message that is being voiced to you. You are not a being without will, so even in euphoria, joy, irritation or tension, try to reflect on what you are doing personally, even if everyone else around is going somewhere, running, shouting, throwing or catching something.

5. Avoid contact with people who hide their face

These can be specially trained provocateurs, law enforcement officers, people with criminal intent or just hooligans. In any case, if they are trying to force you to do something, cause verbal or physical conflict, chant aggressive calls or start a fight ‑ you should get away from them as soon as possible.

6. Do not try to climb poles, canopies, fences

In the desire to photograph or capture on video what is happening, people who have never engaged in physical activity suddenly discover the wonders of dexterity and think that they have become industrial climbers and professional photographers. If someone has firmly decided to break their leg, arm or neck, fall on someone or drop part of the fence on the participants, they can safely climb higher. But we advise you to be guided by the instinct of self-preservation and common sense, because no successful picture in an amateur album or social network is worth your health. In addition, security at such events may misinterpret your intentions and take harsh measures.

7. Do not wear long scarves, dresses with a hem or train, shoes with long laces

In a crowded, cramped and confined space, there is a high risk of catching on something or getting confused. In the case of laces and a train, you may fall, in the case of a scarf, you may get a neck injury or face the risk of suffocation.

8. If you suddenly fall in a crowd, try to group up

If it so happens that you lose your balance and fall for reasons that depend on you or not, immediately roll over on your side, group up, try to protect your head with your hands. If the crowd is moving at this moment, try to get up on at least all fours as quickly as possible and crawl away from the main direction in which people are walking. If you see that someone has fallen next to you, try to pick up this person as quickly as possible and help him get out of the thick of it.

9. If you notice something unusual, get your bearings

Flashes, explosions, a fight, noise, strange movement, the appearance of a car or other vehicle in the crowd that should not be there, most likely, a provocation or something that threatens the health of the majority of those gathered. Don't get too close to this strange event or object. Hold those who want to "go see". Sometimes it's better to leave quickly before the majority of people react. Do not make noise and do not shout, so as not to provoke panic. Whether to leave or stay is solely your choice.

10. If possible, leave the children at home

Unless it's a children's matinee, leave them at home with their grandparents, family friends, or a babysitter. Children are always in a losing position in a crowd: they are smaller, lighter, slower, more vulnerable and get tired faster, succumb to panic and the negative influence of what is happening. After receiving your passport, your children can do whatever they see fit. Before that, let them stay at home, especially if the event is stressful, noisy and crowded.
