"Rover is my best friend!" said owner Cliff Topp of Swanage, Dorset England as he was dragged from the wreckage of his 4x4 this morning after it plunged at least 100ft (30.5m) over a sheer cliff.
The car, a Land Rover Discovery was seen to drive off a cliff, by a couple of 'Drug Smugglers' with binoculars; looking to see if the coast was clear from their yacht, 'The Jolly Roger', moored approximately a mile offshore. The alarm was raised and the Portland Coast Guard sent out a rescue party. They found the man calling for help from the passenger seat of his wrecked car.
Gladys Over, a spokeswoman for Portland Coast Guard told In Seine News;
"We were called at about 0830 BST and it took rescuers about 20 minutes to locate him in thick undergrowth. The man suffered two suspected broken legs and is undergoing surgery. The man is very lucky to be alive. Strange thing is, there was no sign of a driver!"
Cliff admitted from his hospital bed;
"Although Rover was his best friend, he was a bit 'naughty'. In fact we found his criminal record on a train in Leeds; He had been caught driving without a licence, urinating in a public area, visiting a red lamppost district in Exeter, abusing an Airedale and the performing of a lewd act with a Lurcher in Looe.
If caught, Rover will face years in the pound.
