if a human being fell fast enough to break the sound barrier he would also break his neck, and every other non-core bone or joint in his body due to wind resistance issues alone. he can only fall a 9.8m/s2, he will then hit a point where wind resistance will stabilize his acceleration and turn it to constant velocity. Ever tossed an ant of a balcony? they float...same concept
