Watch or Do?

Kudos on a job well done, Jasper Schuringa.

“When you hear a pop on a plane, you’re awake, trust me. So I just jumped, I didn’t think, and I just went, went over there and tried to save the plane, I guess.”

As terrified passengers screamed and the cabin filled with smoke, the level-headed Schuringa and alert crew dragged the suspect to the front and contained him, while others put out the mini-blaze with a fire extinguisher.”

I was struck by how many people were completely paralyzed.  And it’s a bit sexist of me but I was taken aback by the number of Type-A looking men who just watched. 

How do we learn how to act when it counts?  Can this be learned?  If so, sign me up.
