    The won't hit the street. Ever. At best they will fall maybe 9 stories, onto the roof of the extension that runs the entire perimeter of the building.

    FYI they use metal detectors and x-ray machines for entry ever since the Muslim terrorist attack by Ali Hassan Abu Kamal in 1997. So they'll notice your pocket full of coins.

    Not sure how much trouble you could get in but thats retarded. Imagine if you got an infant right in the head with one at that height and with gravity's force. Retardism

    There is also a high mesh fence around the observation deck.

    Such a reckless act could cause severe injury and is criminal.
