How to survive an 11-storey fall

Abstract

Survival from a high fall is rarely possible. We report an unusual case of a patient who fell over 100 ft on to boggy ground and survived. A successful outcome was achieved by the use of aggressive blood product resuscitation and the early application of a pelvic fixator.
