I’m working on a piece of fanfic with a friend at the moment, in which a character is killed by falling from a balcony onto a solid concrete floor. The character is reasonably athletic, but not a trained acrobat, so will make the best landing possible - in other words, not on his head.
What’s the minimum distance he can fall to make this realistic? 30’? 50’? 100’? A number of stories would be just as good - 4, 6, 10? We don’t need medical data, we just want to stop people saying “Ha! A fall from an n’th floor balcony isn’t going to kill him!”
