Take a deep breath. First and formost for any emergency this recenters your prespective and allows you a second to think. (although if someone has a gun pointed at you a second could be your last)
Your instincts should be trusted in an emergency and not second guessed most of the time your first thought is the correct one and when you rationalise something it can compramise your situation.
