What should I do if I'm falling from a height?
Let's say I'm falling from a high cliff and below is just stone. How do I minimize my injury here?

pray ull stil be alive

Sarah Elizabeth
hmm, i dont know. i guess i'd make my body into a ball and try to protect my neck.

lets just hope you don't fall from there
cuz either way ur pretty much screwed

Try to make impact with your legs first. When your feet touch, bend your knees and instantly throw your body forward to transfer the momentum to the side. By doing this just right, you should suffer little or no injury, depending on the height.

You can see people doing things like this on youtube while doing "urban gymnastics."

The best thing you can do is pull your head as close to your butt as possible, and kiss your azz goodbye. :-D

Karl Boss
head first

Count sheep very rapidly on the way down and hope you fall asleep before you land. I would, if I found I had forgotten my parachute - Oh Chucks! I forgot to buy one Damn! Or study Judo (say ten years) and learn how to fall with Breakfalls.

The only thing you can do is try and relax it is said that when falling if your body is totally relaxed you will still have some damage but not like if you were to tense up.Oh yeah and pray like you have never prayed before cause it is going to hurt like hell!

Ross M
hmmm... that's a tough one, easyest thing to do if you are not McGuiver is to not fall :P otherwise your pretty much doomed sorry.

or you could just enjoy the sensation of free falling to your death.

Well I hope for your sake that Super Man will fly down and catch you and land you safely to the ground.

I think the best way is jumping *like a pencil jump* because you would only snap your ankles and possibly your legs but if you jump another way then you would end up either hurting your spin or you might slip into a coma

Curl up and try to land on your side or back.

Also, a prayer could help too.

Flap your arms really fast.

flap your arms and tuck and roll at the bottom.

I'd say on your back, because the spine and all the back bones are protecting all the special organs. If you land on your front, a bone from your ribcage could pierce and organ....just a theory! X

Make sure you have proper climbing equipment such as pitons and roping and are protected if you fall and can't safely and on a ledge or tree.

Try to relax. Things hurt more if you tense up.

heels first.. attempt to roll forward.
It isn't going to work from an extreme height... but it will minimize damage...

Jagged rocks... I don't know... I guess all you can do is spread your body out to slow yourself slightly and before you hit them get back into a bent knees and arms at your sides afftempting to land on your heels.

Who says land on your back?
Anyone see Superman Christopher Reeve?
He fell on his back ... off of a horse.
sad story.

You should try to maximize your surface resistance, and steer yourslef - like skydivers do.

By presenting your front to the wind, rather than a streamlined profile, you can decrease your spead, and steer - to some degree.

This is not a situation you would want to be in, and regardless of the tactics you used to decrease injury, odds are, the difference in degree of damage would be slight.

Well, according to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, you have to do just 2 things to fly:
1. Throw yourself at the ground.
2. Miss
