British Man Survives 200 Foot Fall After Attempting To Save Dog: Incredible Video

He almost lost his life trying to save the life of his Best Friend.

A dog walker survived a fall of over 200ft down a cliff after going to try to save his pet dog, which had just done the same thing.

The 53-year-old man, who has not been named, fell down Little Cliff, in North Yorkshire, England on Monday.

Police said it was “absolutely remarkable” that he survived with only a broken leg and wrist.

Flight Sgt Rick Jones, who piloted the rescue helicopter, said: “We got a call from the coastguard about a gentleman who had apparently gone over the cliff looking for his dog.

“Where the gentleman fell is about 200ft high, so we were obviously fearing the worst.

“But when we arrived both he and his dog were showing signs of life.

“We believe that he’s now stable and fingers crossed he’ll make a good recovery.

“The other good news is the dog is alright.”

Inspector Bruce Prendergast, of North Yorkshire, England Police, said: “It is absolutely remarkable that this man has survived a 200ft fall down the cliff face and escaped with injuries that are serious but not life-threatening.

“It is testament to the hard work and bravery of the coastguard and helicopter crew, who managed to extract the man from the bottom of the cliff in difficult circumstances, that he and his dog survived.”

Police do not believe there were any suspicious circumstances in the fall
