Hi JD, don't know if this link will help http://www.glenbrook.k12.il.us/gbssci/phys/Class/newtlaws/u2l3e.html cos, I assume you particularly mean what happens to a human body eh ?....well..I can't help you with that one, the eventual consequence is self explanatory though :D

Thank you for the welcome and the link. It turns out that there is a book devoted to the subject of humans falling. There's a book about everything...
