Had to look up the word before I could vote.

@ColCampbell, I take it you haven't gone to any of the Reformation Faires then. Re-enacting the Defenestration of Prague is always the biggest crowd pleaser!

I voted for Die Hard, but I'm sure Jackie Chan, Jet Li or Tony Jaa did it better somewhere.

Hans Gruber was shot so should not be on this list.

Defenestration is the act of throwing someone or something out of a window. The term was coined around the time of an incident in Prague Castle in the year 1618, which became the spark that started the Thirty Years' War.

The best is from Braveheart when the King threw his son's lover right out the window.

Also there are several others that should not be on this list either.

To make the list the individual must be threw out of a high window or off of some other high place.

If they fall or jump themselves that does not count.

Yes, but the REALLY GREAT defenestration scene comes moments later, with MacChesney (Victor McLaglen) holding two Highlanders out the upstairs window by their collars.
The Patrol commander says "MacChesney, put those men down!"
"But, Sir…"
"You heard me, MacChesney!"
"Yes, Sir!" Saluting and letting the kilties drop to the street below.
