Okay we need some math quiz to figure out what the terminal velocity is of a bill that weight, borrowing from a tower that high has to be quite a bit of inertia for it to crash through two floors! The guy they quoted is right, they were terribly fortunate. And more than a little bit of irony there, bell ringers almost killed by a bell! The opposite of being 'saved by the bell'
