Niether,Gus Grissom situated himself in his seat and an exposed wire caught a spark,and since the only thing in there was oxygen a fire broke loose really fast and within 17 seconds all three crew members died.They tried to escape but that was when they bolted the doors shut on the outside not being able to open them from the inside.

How does a model rocket kill you?

A model rocket could hit you after launch, but the usual death threat is the possibility of a CATO (Catastrophic Failure). This usually results in the motor exploding in some manner which could blow your finger off or kill you according to the motor size.
