TODAY national investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen recently did a piece (above) on how to stay safe when dangerous turbulence hits your plane. It’s an informative segment, especially after more than two dozen passengers were recently injured when their flight from Moscow to Bangkok hit severe turbulence.

One of the tips I took away is that if you’re in the bathroom when the plane starts experiencing severe turbulence, you shouldn’t run back to your seat (that’s what I would’ve done). Instead, flight attendants recommend you sit on the toilet (I know, ewww) and brace yourself until it passes. He covers it at the 3:00 mark in the four-minute video.
