Death by Turkey

Classical Mechanics Level pending

Poor Grandmother! Turkeys can't fly, especially when they're dead. Of course, the sight of the bird sitting helpless in the refrigerator evoked such pity in Grandmother that she felt compelled to take it in her arms and bring it to the roof of our 250 meter high building. She then proceeded to throw it horizontally to its freedom at 3 meters per second. Meanwhile, at street level, Nietzsche (15.2 meters from the building); Heidegger (21.2 meters from the building), and Sartre (29.1 meters from the building) were having a knock down drag out tiff about existentialism, of course. Which one of these existentialist philosophers was struck and killed by the plummeting turkey? (Use 10 meters per square second as "g.")
