Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I thought a lot of it was due to the fact among some people, jumping instead of staying inside the building was an act of suicide? I'm probably off the mark, but I think that was the case with one of the families interviewed in 9/11: The Falling Man. It's been a long time since I've seen it, though

no, the whole pass out/have a heart attack if you fall from great heights thing is a bit of a urban myth but you would still die pretty quickly upon impact so i think jumping would still be preferable.

Right i had this discussion a while back in class.
Would you rather burn alive in a steel fireball or jump and have a painless death?
Can someone also answer this also it turned into a sub debate, if someone jumped would they pass out during free fall?
