      jumping into the freezing water would kill you, due to hypothermia use your heads jumping onto concrete will only break or sprain your legs/ injure your back if you fall like an idoit

      @BearGrylls Hypothermia doesn't quite work like that, when hypothermic your body contracts your muscles in a vague attempt to keep warm, Ergo you wouldn't be able to swim (Or bearly anyway)

      Ankit the average human dies when the fall from a height of around 10 feet on to concrete. The average two story building is 20 feet tall. With the water if you get out within 30 minutes give or take a little you can and most likely will survive.

      All you guys talkin about hypothermia, it doesnt set in instantly, depending on how cold the water is it can be up to 20 minutes, plenty of time to swim off, however a fractures spine from a concrete is for life.

      Okay, look. Two stories is roughly 6 meters high. I've jumped as high as 10 meters, it's completely survivable, if you know how to jump. The only danger there is the freezing aspect. But if help is standing by, you get to walk away relatively unharmed.

      20 feet up into water isn't that painful as solid ground. Because if you make yourself into a pencil then you'll plunge straight in and not get hurt. Whereas if you land on your belly then.... Ouch.

    By falling two stories, you are going to be traveling fast enough to allow the water to act as a solid object. So either way, you are going to receive a hard hit, now its just if you want to lie there grunting and moaning, or if you want to receive more punishment by sinking into freezing water when your breath just got knocked out of you. I'd rather just fall and get it over with, not have to worry about saving myself after.

      No. Water gives you a softer fall, even if it is bad. And people jump from higher than 2 stories into water for fun, but you don't see me jumping off buildings. Basically, falling from high onto anything = bad. But falling from high into water > falling from high onto concrete.

      Freezing water it technically anything below 0 degrees Celsius, so if it was -1 degrees C, you almost certainly not get hypothermia if you got out quick enough. Also, if you land correctly then you won't get hurt too badly

    Two stories would not cause your speed to increase enough to make the water the equivalent of concrete. Jumping off the golden gate bridge, sure... but two stories? There are diving boards higher than that. I'm a great swimmer so... it wouldn't be all that bad. And growing up in Northern California means the ocean here is COLD.

    I like Hot Water, but would rather drown in Freezing Water. Also it would be Painful to fall onto Concrete because even in an instant death, your Brain and Organs can still work till later when they finally shut down, so B would be the Best Choice.

    Concrete can fracture your spine and make you a vegtable, freezing water is water, you just swim out.

    Well, reguardless it's the same thing if you do the math, 'cause you'd be at terminal velocity so I think it'd still feel like concrete.

    Actually you break your bones either way because of the force, velocity, and weight excereted onto the water it will be exactly like hitting concrete.

    Assuming its salt water there would be no ice generally and who says you cant be saved XD and thats what 24 feet max? takes about 50 to hit water like cement so water all the way, just endure and avoid shock.
