It is standard procedure for anyone who sustained a fall to be "boarded and collared" in case there is any neck injury to reduce the chance of paralysis if there is. It has nothing to do with the severity of the fall.

It's funny because he seems to be ok, but I would like to push some of your 64 year old relatives off of a 5 or 6 foot stage onto a concrete floor.

He was fortunate that the Director of Accident and Emergency at St Vincent's Hospital was in the second row of the audience. He was unconscious having fallen around 1.5 metres hitting his head. He is in a stable condition and conscious.
