Man ejected from sunroof during Big Sur cliff fall waits 2 days for rescue

A man is recovering after his car careened off a cliff in Monterey County, California. He was found two days after the crash, rescuers said on social media.

A driver is recovering after spending two days on the side of a cliff after his car rolled several hundred feet down a California hillside.

The unidentified man told rescuers he was driving home late Sunday night in Monterey County when he swerved to avoid hitting some deer, causing him to veer off the roadway. The driver said he was ejected through his car’s sunroof.

California Highway Patrol (CHP) Coastal Division Air Operations said in a Facebook post they were called to the scene Tuesday morning after receiving a call from Pacific Grove police requesting a helicopter to fly down the coastline from Post Ranch in Big Sur to Monastery Beach in Carmel-By-The-Sea, California. It was reported a vehicle had possibly gone over the side after a Post Ranch employee left Sunday night and never returned home.


A CHP airplane was already in the area for a separate call and responded to the area to search the cliffs below Highway 1, where the vehicle was located nearly 400 feet over the side near the beach below.

The initial helicopter requested later responded to the scene, as well.

“The Big Sur Fire Chief top roped down to the victim and began to assess his injuries as H-70 arrived,” CHP said on Facebook, along with a video of the man’s rescue that shows him being hoisted to safety.
