Stay in the First Floor so You Can Leap to Safety

Comment from a reader on the post: How Many Bars in Barretto Have Fire Exits? During the Marcos era in the early eighties many visitors to Manila were aware of the fact that there had been a few hotel fires in the Philippine capital. In fact there was a suggestion it might have been the work of the NPA. Anyway, as a result many visitors to Ermita from Hong Kong would always stay on the first floor so that they could leap from there in relative safety in the event of a blaze. But I don't know if that would have worked in the Dryden tragedy.
