  • The best thing you can do is remain calm if this happens. I had it happen to me as a kid - I fell from a tree and nobody was around. It was a terrifying feeling but I remember thinking (I was about 9 years old) relax, relax try to breathe ... and it came back.

  • Yes, they fell off of monkey bars. Just picked them up held them for a minute. Wasn't really that big of a deal. I remember falling out of a tree when I was little and it was scary but I have had a lot worse happen. I wouldn't worry about it. Oh and they gasped a few times, I am sure there was a couple of sobs and reassurance and then business as usual.
