TWO adults and two children narrowly escaped death after their car plunged 250 feet off California cliff.

According to a report from San Mateo Sheriff’s office, the incident occurred in San Mateo County, California, on Monday 2nd of January, where two rescued adults suffered “non-life threatening injuries”, while the two children were unharmed.

Report has it that the car was traveling southbound on the Pacific Coast Highway when it suddenly lost control and went over the cliff at Devil’s Slide, South of the Tom Lantos tunnel, and landed near the water’s edge below.

Witnesses who were present at the scene when the accident occurred immediately called 911.

“The car flipped and landed on its wheels in the fall,” CAL FIRE/Coastside Fire Incident Commander, Brian Pottenger told reporters.

Pottenger also added that, while his rescue team were lowering down the cliff, they were shocked when they noticed movements inside the damaged vehicle.

“We were actually very shocked when we found survivable victims in the vehicle. So, that actually was a great hopeful moment for us,” he said.

Authorities are yet to figure out what led to the accident, however, all four victims were hospitalised.
