How high from ground level is the third-story of a building? 30 feet? Would falling from 30 ft. could result in death, depending on the surface?
Why do you ask? Curious question... I would think if the landing surface was soft and spongy, one could still break a leg or neck.
I'm wondering why you're wondering.
Because space to ask the question was limited, I couldn't go into detail. But, no, I'm not planning to jump or push anyone from a window. LOL... In a description in a novel I'm writing, I need to be able to describe the number of feet from a third-story window to the ground outside.
30ft. usualy. If it was concrete depending how you fell you would almost certainly break many bones and if you hit your head first you would die.
Yes...if you fall on the right body part, falling from 8 feet could kill you....and, I have a friend who had one of those beautiful personalities that everyone wishes they were blessed to have....he was a police officer.
One day he got into a foot chase and the suspect jumped from one rooftop to another. Well, my friend followed, it wasn't very high, had he fallen in a different angel, he may have survived. But, when he jumped, he lost his footing and fell directly on the back of his head....
He was pronounced brain dead and lay on life support for 8 years before his parents could gain the courage to release him....it was awful.....
So, the point is, don't fall, don't jump and don't play at 30 feet unless you have a spotter and a net.
