Woman driver trapped for 20 hours after car plunges 300ft

A DRIVER who crashed off a clifftop road was dragged to safety yesterday - after 20 HOURS teetering above a 300ft drop.

Lyn, who suffered leg injuries in the crash, spent the night staring death in the face.

But at 9.30am yesterday, her grey car was spotted by holidaying jogger Ben Stafford, 25. He slithered down to find her bloodied but conscious, then raised the alarm by shouting to a man walking on the clifftop at St Agnes Head near Newquay, Cornwall.

A delicate rescue operation described as "very precarious" was launched involving coastguards, firemen, cops and paramedics.

They secured the car in position with a winch line before finally releasing Lyn at noon. She was stretchered up the cliff and flown to hospital in Truro, where she was treated for shock, exhaustion and gashes to her legs and torso.

Ben said: "It is only by the grace of God that her car stopped by the cliff edge."

Netherlands: FC Twente stadium collapses, killing one and hospitalising 10

One construction worker was killed and 14 others injured by falling steel and rubble when part of a stadium's roof in the city of Enschede collapsed during renovation work on Thursday.



"A large part of the roof has collapsed. A substantial number of people got trapped and there is one dead victim as far as we know," Enschede mayor Peter den Oudsten told reporters.

The incident was probably related to construction work at the stadium, police said, adding that workers were the only people in the stadium at the time.


"We were at the third level and we were frightened. There was noise, everyone was running everywhere. We were working below the floor. There was panic, everyone was running away. Then we looked if there were injured people," a construction worker told public broadcaster NOS.

Among the injured, two were serious, Den Oudsten said. Ten people were hospitalised and authorities were checking if any people were still trapped.



Enschede is located in the east of the Netherlands close to the German border and photos on Dutch media showed several ambulances and a fire truck at the scene. There were reports that a trauma helicopter was also deployed.

Football club FC Twente, the Dutch top division's runners-up last season and champions in 2009-10, play at the stadium where work to expand seating to 30,000 is scheduled for completion by August 1 in time for the start of the new season.
