A 39-year-old man was brought to the emergency department after falling off a ladder from a height of approximately 5m. He was unsure how he landed but denied loss of consciousness. He had severe neck pain at the scene and the ambulance crew placed him supine on a board with a hard cervical collar and blocks. On examination, he has a laceration on the forehead. His GCS is 15/15 with no focal neurological deficits. The rest of the physical examination is normal.
