    We know he was close. Michael said as much. But we won't know for sure how close is close. I don't know how close you'd have to be to be heard over the helicopter, nor do I know how loudly I would scream if I just realized I was falling to my death.

    My best guess is 9th floor, but I'm for the rope swing feat, Gunny is a tough SOB, and a hell of a character, (and the only representative of the Mighty Corps among the doughboys), he's alive, pretty mangled and in hands of the Mallers, but alive, maybe Saul & Vic (Stop calling me that Vato!), will free him and Blond Boy while rescueing Lizzie.

    Doesn't scratch say at the end of the chapter " Put him with the old man " Do you think she means Burt? And if so it seems like he is alive because the person they found was alive so it wouldn't make sense putting him with a dead Burt

    I will say this much, the building on the cover art is NOT the same building they took off from.

    I have a theory - Kalani's dead body broke the fall.

    Well assuming that the zip line leads to a shorter building (which I imagine it would, given how zip lines work) there might be a chance that Burt could have survived a shorter fall, but probably broke both of his legs if not his spine in the process. Or he could have just died from the fall.

    From what Kc might be suggesting, I don't know how short the building is where they took off from but it gives Burt a better chance of survival (as small as it might be).

    I expect nikvoodoo to come up with something that will debunk that even a shorter fall from a 4 - 8 story building is completely fatal XD.

    No debunking. One can survive a fall from 40-50 feet with broken bones. The issue comes if he fell from higher. Once one reaches a certain speed, the height becomes irrelevant. Once that speed is achieved: game over.


    Of course, there are exceptions

    I think this explains both how Burt may have survived the fall and why he did.

    I do think that Myth Busters made a thing about falling and hitting ground and hitting water, but as we all know we don't know how far he fell
