I've done what he described, but the pallet jack I was using had a brake
that activated when you release the handle. I wouldn't have done it
without that brake.

If you have a large enough number of people on a load, you can survive
quite a lot. I once had a VAX 6000 fall on me from a little more than two
feet off the ground. Because there were enough people to move it before
it crushed me (and they were all paying attention), I got off with just
sore joints and muscles.
