Has anyone ever run fully clothed under a shower that was on because a fire alarm went off and they thought it the only safe place to be?

No but surprisingly firefighters have found dead people who laid in the bathtub full of water only to be boiled by the intense 5000F heat.

This tactic doesn’t work as a safety measure.

I wonder if any of those ^^ ever received a Darwin Award.

@Jeruba, right? They had time to fill a tub with water but didn’t have time to get out of the house. Smh.

Time doesn’t have to be the deciding factor in such a situation.

A roommate called me at work whilst sitting in the tub with my cat. The local tornado alarm was activated when she was home. That’s as closest as can give you.
