Thanks for query

You need non contrast CT Scan of brain and cervical spine as you have severe fall from height.
CT Scan will detect parenchymal hemorrhage,subdural or extradural hemorrhage. Also it will detect bony injuries in bony skull and cervical spine.
Of course you need proper clinical examination and further X-rays if needed.

Take Care
