After seeing this shocking video of Asiana flight 214 crash-landing, it is remarkable how many passengers exited the aircraft unharmed – but did the location of passengers seats leave some safer than others?
In an analysis done on 20 crashes between 1971 and 2007, data showed those sitting closest to the cockpit are the least safe, with a survival rate of 49 percent, CNN's Pamela Brown reports.
The survival rate of those in the middle section of the plane was 56 percent, and the rear cabin was 69 percent.
In this case, the plane landed short of the runway, ripping off the tail. Authorities say the two Chinese teens killed in the crash were sitting in the back half of the plane.
The best choice, according to aviation experts, sit as close to the exit row as possible.
