In 1976 the Swiss Federal Department of Justice and Police initiated a one year study of injured seat belt wearers. The data of the 410 oais greater than or equal to 2 cases registered are here analysed with regard to the 15 occupants ejected despite belts. Ejection turned out to be the most traumatic accident situation in terms of mean iss and death rate. The injuries sustained by the ejected occupants are discussed. The main reason for ejection was slipping out of two point shoulder belts in rollovers, followed by torn three-point belts. /Author/TRRL/
