Default Body Slamming A Swarm

Note: Do not attempt this in high-realism games.

Last night my luchadora street urchin body slammed a rat swarm in order to do some large area injury. We did not find any body slamming rules in Basic, and were trying for speed, so we went with "Thrust damage +2, large area, based off of wrasslin', counts as an all out attack."

In the cold light of day, it seems to me this might actually just be a standard slam attack, with the target braced on a hard object, at a speed somehow calculated from max jumping height...
...I also seem to recall "falling on top of someone rules," those might be even better.

Are there published body slamming rules? How would you folks handle this?
