Cliffhanger mum res­cued

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - News - Awatkins@cbnews.es

By Alex Watkins A WOMAN had to be res­cued when her car be­came stuck hang­ing over the edge of a ravine af­ter she went out look­ing for her son in the Cre­vil­lente coun­try­side on Mon­day night.

Her father called the Guardia Civil at about 01.00 on Tues­day morn­ing say­ing she had left sev­eral hours ago and her mo­bile phone ap­peared to have no sig­nal, ex­plained a spokesman for the force.

Of­fi­cers spent over an hour search­ing along the routes she took reg­u­larly be­fore they came across her car perched pre­car­i­ously with its front wheels dan­gling two me­tres above the bot­tom of the ravine.

The woman, a 47-year-old lo­cal res­i­dent, was still in­side.

The of­fi­cers helped her out and took her to the Guardia Civil sta­tion in the town, where her father was wait­ing.

Since the ve­hi­cle was a front-wheel drive, it had been im­pos­si­ble for her to move it, and she had de­cided to stay in­side be­cause the ground was so steep and she had thought it was not safe to go look­ing for help in the dark­ness.

The Guardia Civil did not re­port what had happened to her son, but it is likely his mother had plenty to talk to him about when he even­tu­ally re­turned.
