About the symptom

A fall from 1m (3ft.) in height would be less likely to cause serious harm than from a more critical height of 6m (>20ft.) if you're an adult. Depending on how you fall, you could injure your skull, neck or back and sustain bruises or open injuries. Small children and infants can sustain serious injury from a fall of 1m.
