The investigation asserts that head wounds brought about by objects tumbling from overhead stockpiling canisters can influence the patient months after the injury was maintained.

The discoveries of Dr. Rozmaryn’s investigation depended on an overview of 462 falling things occurrences on the 757 of an anonymous significant US carrier during the mid-1990s.
