Yes. If you're running full speed into someone are you going to absorb all that contact or create your own leverage?
No. When falling into other people 99.9% of athletes have their hands out and cushion their fall. They may try to grab onto someone to stop their fall. They do not push and extend their arms off of that person trying to help them while still falling down.
Go youtube clips of basketball players falling into team benches or the crowd.
So by your statement, a person falling should turn aggressor and put in harm's way anyone trying to help them? If that's the case then no one should ever try to help you if you fall.
