Climber Survives 1,000ft Mountain Plunge

In Scotland, 35-year-old Ben Nevis had just reached the 3,589-foot summit of Sgurr Choinnich Mor Mountain when he lost his footing and fell 1,000 feet down the almost vertical eastern face of the mountain. Although there was little hope he had survived, a rescue helicopter was dispatched and amazingly found Ben standing up and looking at a map. Lieutenant Tim Barker, the crew’s observer, said, ”It was quite incredible. He must have literally glanced off the outcrops as he fell, almost flying.” A paramedic was winched down to check on Ben who appeared to be unscathed beyond some superficial cuts and bruises and a minor chest injury.
