There have probably been a lot of short people who narrowly missed being decapitated in accidents because of their short stature.

Yeah, for example Richard Hammond.

I’m one, construction accident almost took my head off. I moved in a nick of time, and landing gear from a job boom took my hard hat for a 150 foot trip across the job site. Clipped the back of the hard hat but didn’t really hit my head, had I been a little taller though then good night.

Also probably plenty of short people who have been hit by something in the head instead of the chest.

Its true, if I was 4000 metres taller, I’d have been hit many times by overhead airplanes.
