- A car horrifically plunged 30 metres off a cliff south of Sydney about 7am Friday

- Paramedics treated the man and he was airlifted to hospital in stable condition
The driver of a car which terrifyingly plunged 30 metres off a cliff miraculously survived the dramatic fall.
The 30-year-old driver suffered head and face injuries after his car fell at Hanging Rock Lookout, south of Sydney, just after 7am on Friday.
Emergency services said the car narrowly missed a walker on the Ben’s Walk Trail beneath.
Paramedics treated the driver for his injuries before he was airlifted to St George Hospital where he remains in a stable condition.
NSW Ambulance Inspector Christopher Lahene said it was a miracle the two survived.
‘When we are called to jobs like this, where a car has accidentally gone off a cliff, it’s quite confronting for our paramedics,’ he told news.com.au.
‘It’s miraculous, even though the car plunged about 30 metres, that the patient was able to walk out of the scene.
‘If I were him or the person out for a walk, I’d be getting a lotto ticket because surviving something like this is quite extraordinary.’
