 Study Shows That Men are the First to Save Themselves During Shipwrecks

This can be a big blow to so called chivalrous men, as a recent insight that analyzed more than a dozen maritime disasters revealed that during shipwrecks, it is the men who save themselves first rather than  women and children.   

Of course, barring the titanic, this perhaps was an exception, men on board have twice the chance of survival during ship wrecks. Usually, the Captain and crew look out for their own safety first.

Research on British shipwrecks showed that women fared badly than men despite the order on British ships to save women and children first. 

"This contrasts with the notion of British men being more gallant than men of other nationalities," said the study authors.
