An "Injury Classic" paper by Hugh DeHaven was recently re-published in
Injury Prevention, 2000, 6, 62-68, and entitled "Mechanical analysis of
survival in falls from heights of fifty to one hundred and fifty feet". It's
quite interesting. The paper first appeared in War Medicine in 1942.

I look forward to seeing your summary of other sources of information on
this issue.

Regards,

Max Hely.
