Well I never have been dropped, but I have to confess to dropping my wife

The whipping on the end of the hammock pulled off from the larks head attachment to the whoopie sling.
No injuries resulted, I was just in the time out chair for a bit

I also dropped Macentyre 2 times in one night

He was sleeping in our place, on the way to MN, hanging from straps I had used for years from the ceiling joists.
First one failed, then a bit later the second failed. Glad I had provided a thick crash mat under the hammock.

I guess they were not good webbing, something I had found when I first started hanging.
He made some loops from Mule tape that was hanging on the wall and now I use them instead of unknown strap material
