The recent incident in Surat brings light upon the problem that children get panicked easily in situations like these instead enabling themselves to focus on safety measures which could save their lives. As we all know, in a fire, most die due to inhalation of smoke which blocks the basic respiration process instead of actually getting burnt. 

Not every time a teacher or a parent or someone elder would be present with children. If they get into such adverse situations, they must know how to bring themselves out of it safely.
