** Done twice in ''Film/AViewToAKill'', first is when one of the executives gets ThrownFromTheZeppelin, and second is the scene where Max Zorin falls off the Golden Gate Bridge. Though thats the last the audience sees of him (ie. no body), its pretty clear he is killed.

Though thats that's the last the audience sees of him (ie. no body), its pretty clear he is killed. Naturally, since many San Franciscans will tell you that simply falling from the street level is fatal (the body is immediately pulverized and the victim - if still alive somehow - drowns in their own blood); Max fell from the ''very top'' of one of the towers.

'''Cassidy''': All right, I'll jump first/.
'''Sundance''': Nope.
'''Cassidy''': Then you jump first.
'''Sundance''': No, I said.
'''Cassidy''': What's the matter with you?!.
'''Sundance''': I can't swim!
'''Cassidy''': (Laughs hysterically) Why you crazy? The fall'll probably kill you!

** Of course, it should be noted that this trope may come into play with that video because it's water. Regardless of the fact that it's water, it's 10 tons of something.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has River Song fall several stories down a building and land in the TARDIS swimming pool, apparently unharmed. Though it was the TARDIS swimming pool. The TARDIS is known for being psychic, and having the ability to alter its own shape, rooms, and properties such as gravity. It has also been known to help people stay alive.
** Partially subverted in ''HeavenSent'' where the Doctor falls from a great height but realizes the fact that he'll fall into water won't ensure his survival. He's right: the impact knocks him out, but he sustains no other injuries and wakes up before he drowns.

* As noted, San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge is the site of frequent suicide attempts, a few of which each year are invariably unsuccessful. It's to the point that there are crisis hotline phones along the bridge sidewalks along with signs warning prospective suicide attemptees against making the jump, as detailed in [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suicides_at_the_Golden_Gate_Bridge this Wikipedia article]]. In 2011, a teenage boy leaped from the bridge during a field trip (apparently convinced by this trope that he was in no real danger) and not only lived but sustained no injury more serious than bruising. There are a lot of variables that come into account in these falls, but it's usually the wind that saves you.
