Camper Sleepwalked Off 60 Foot Cliff


Emergency responders in Kentucky say a man sleepwalked off a cliff.

The camper fell 60 feet off a cliff at Red River Gorge and was seriously injured...fortunately he's expected to make a full recovery.

The man, who is from Cincinnati, Ohio, was camping with friends over the weekend. They say he has a history of sleepwalking and when they noticed he wasn't at the campsite in the middle of the night they called 911. Eventually they found him at the bottom of the cliff.

Hours later he was flown to the University of Kentucky hospital where he's being treated for a head injury, dislocated shoulder and broken leg.

Officials are calling this a miracle.

"It's just really a miracle because he fell 60 feet into boulders. If he had hit one of the boulders it certainly, in my opinion, would have had a different outcome. so very, very fortunate that he survived this."

Waking up at the bottom of a rocky cliff with severe injuries is no doubt scary, and this woman's story is no different.

Alyson Blair, 31, had a dream that she was drowning, and when she woke up, she was in a river outside her home and it was too deep to stand. The mother says two weeks later the same thing happened.
