Man jumping from a building

I have a character who jumps from a 10 plus stories building. Yes, I know he dies (or should die). The point is that he is going to survive because he doesn't have the hability to die, but I know his body should end up in a very bad disposition.

So, that's my question... what kind of thing happens to the body of a person who commits suicide by jumping off a building? I can guess his bones will break and probably there will be some brain spreading around, but will his limbs get separated from the body? Will something else other than blood spread around? Is it likely for the skin to get ripped?

I tried the tags, but couldn't find an answer. I also googled for "suicide jump", "suicide landed" and other combinations, but I only ended up with a lot of pictures and videos from the Twin Towers incident, and I really don't feel like watching those.

So, anyone here can help me out?

(Sorry for my crappy English, I did my best...)
