Parenchymal ruptures of the kidneys are rare events. The most common injuries occur at the sites of fixed and mobile organ portions, namely the ureter and the vascular entrance sites. Frequency and severity of renal injuries seem to be independent of the falling height. Instead, the site of impact is crucial for the extent of renal injuries, with victims landing on their sides being most likely to suffer renal injury [38]. 5 Cause of Death, Survival Times The majority of victims of fatal falls from height die at the scene instantly or within minutes.

In a clinical trial, it has been suggested that cardiac injuries are more likely to occur when sternal fracture is present [33], an observation well in line with the correlation of the two injury types seen at autopsy [29]. However, there seems to be no significant correlation between sternal fractures and the type of cardiac injury. Minor injuries, especially cardiac contusion/concussion, can be present in blunt chest trauma and may contribute to fatal outcome but are, due to minor morphological changes, difficult to detect at autopsy without histological investigations.
