Close call at cliff’s edge


Share post:

A YOUNG WOMAN should be thanking the good residents of West Terrace for saving her from what could have been a most tragic ending late Tuesday night.

​The lady driver, who drove a St George-registered Toyota Hilux pickup-truck, almost ended up at the bottom of a 50-foot drop near the residential district, but was saved by the quick action of residents and members of the Fire Service.

The driver was reportedly too close to the edge of the precipice and the vehicle tipped over as she tried to reverse.

According to a witness, the vehicle was dangerously perched over the side despite all the driver’s efforts to reverse before residents, including former police officer Randolph Hackett, Jeffrey O’Brien and Colvin Campbell came to her rescue.

O’Brien, who recalled the eventful night, told the SATURDAY SUN he got the call for help from his neighbour Hackett that a vehicle was sliding over the cliff.
