In northern California, two adults and two young children were saved after their automobile fell more than 75 metres (250 feet) off a cliff.
On Monday, the Tesla car plunged off a cliff at the Devil’s Slide region of the Pacific Coast Highway.
According to Brian Pottenger of California’s Coastside Fire Protection District, the car looked to have flipped a few times before landing on its wheels stuck against the cliff mere feet from the seashore (CFPD).
The accident’s survivors included a 4-year-old child, a 9-year-old boy, and two adults.
Crews used a rope system to manually haul the kids in a rescue basket up the cliff after removing them from the back window.
They suffered from “musculoskeletal injuries,” according to emergency services, and were transported by ambulance to the hospital.
The adults were lifted up the cliff by a helicopter and brought to the hospital since they had more severe wounds.
Officials did not specify whether the four people in the automobile were related to one another.
It is being looked into what prompted the Tesla to veer off the road.
Around 15 miles (24 kilometres) south of San Francisco, in a steep, rocky, and twisting coastline terrain known as Devil’s Slide, an accident occurred.
The Pacific Coast Highway, also known as State Route 1, runs beside the cliff and is well-known locally for tragic collisions. It is a popular tourist route.
