So how the hell did Sue get up? A sort of three point
pushup (nose, hindleg, hindleg), the little teeny arms
useful only for pre-positioning? Surely a fall in an
adult individual was not necessarily a fatal event?

Perhaps it was. I bet that a fall is fatal for an adult galloping giraffe. The solution is that they simply don't fall. Apparently they watch where they step. :^) (Looks scary on TV!)
