If you are going 40 mph and you catch an edge, your head will hit the ground in about 0.08 second. Even automatic reflexes are not good enough to react to that. Dunno how fast the OP was going, but the point is that when you do an edge catch, how fast you hit the ground is determined more by how fast you were going than by gravity. It isn't a "fall", it's a rotation.
Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
