Miracle: Man Survives Fall From 4,000-foot Sheer Cliff In Sri Lanka. Lucky: The Dutch tourist survived the 4,000 foot fall when he landed on a tree

A Dutch tourist reportedly survived falling off a 4,000-foot sheer cliff in Sri Lanka when a tree broke his fall. UPI has more:



Mamitho Lendas, 35, was honeymooning in Horton Plains National Park when he slipped off a scenic cliff called the “World’s End” while photographing his new wife.

Lendas was saved when a tree about 160 feet below broke his fall.

“I fell down backward two times and then I sat in bushes for like three and a half hours,” Lendas told the BBC. “Three and a half hours — the longest three and a half hours in my life.”

Lendas was eventually hoisted to the top by a rope. He and his wife extended thanks to a Canadian man named “Kent,” who they said talked to Lendas throughout the rescue.

Lendas is the first person to survive a fall from the World’s End, which affords views of mist-shrouded hills and mountains, as well as the Indian Ocean some 50 miles to the south.
