    Default falling into shadow??

    My father is getting mental ill.
    He staggerd and slumped to the living room floor, falling into his own shadow.
    I don't understand the underline sentence.

    not a teacher

    The father was in the living room and casting a shadow on the floor. When he staggered and collapsed, he fell onto the floor at the place where his shadow was.

    I don't understand the underlined sentence expression/words.
