Man Uses Cell Phone to Save Himself After Fall

Posted: Updated:
A driver in Colorado plunged off a cliff, and after falling more than 500 feet, was somehow able to get his cell phone to call for help.

Rescuers said James McLaughlin, 21, was thrown from his car during the accident Friday night.

Amazingly, he was able to crawl back inside, where he stayed overnight, until he found his cell phone and called for help Saturday morning.

Firefighters were able to pull him to safety. He was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
