Each year 200-500 are killed in tragic air crashes, in many cases the air craft is not completely destroyed and there are some survivors.
After detailed study and research a report was published which claimed that there are particular seats in the aircraft where the death risk is far lower than other part of the aircraft.
The back seats are 49% safer and less risky than the front seats because in most cases, wither during landing or in crash the front is most damaged part of the aircraft.
When we talk about the back seats then among them those which are before the last ones are safer because in most of the cases people sitting on these seats survived.
Similar report was published in Times magazine which claimed that particular seats are more safe. Such as near the emergency exit.
