How to not die falling out of a high-rise

Cats. They are soft, cuddly, and make a great accent in any living room. And now they're teaching us how to land safely if we fall out of a high-rise.

Click here for the video "Why cats land on their feet".

If you don't have time to watch the video but still want to survive a 15-story fall, here are the highlights:

1. Rotate head and spot your landing. 

2. Twist your spine and align your hips. 

3. Arch spine to reduce force of impact.

4. Land on all four legs.
