What is the "Triangle of Life" and is it legitimate?

The "Triangle of Life" is a misguided idea about the best location a person should try to occupy during an earthquake. It is listed in the Urban Legends category on the Snopes Urban Legends Reference Web site.


Drop, cover, and hold under a table or desk is still the best recommendation, according to the American Red Cross.
