There are a lot of people who haven't thought about what could happen and what to do. They may have had a class in high school but forgot since how to react. Now, when they get into a situation they react in a panic, going from being the driver to another passenger.

All we can do, if we have thought about what to do is to share that knowledge with our loved ones and friends in hope they are prepared.

OP did a good thing sharing this as a "don't forget what to do" moment.
