Elderly husband and wife miraculously survive plunge off cliff

A 90-year-old woman and her 83-year-old husband plunged 70 feet off a cliff into a California lake in their car — and “amazingly” lived to tell the tale, police said.

The fortunate fogies were cruising by the Lake Camanche Reservoir near Campo Seco at around 10 p.m. Wednesday when they swerved off the road and flew over a rocky embankment into shallow water, according to the Amador County Sheriff’s Office.

“Lucky for them, the water level was very low, and they landed in only about four feet of water,” the department wrote on Facebook Thursday. “[Officials] worked together to rescue the 83 driver and his 90 year old wife, who amazingly suffered only minor injuries!”

The unnamed man was driving a dark-colored sedan with his wife in the passenger seat during the death-defying crash.

No other details about the lucky couple or the incident were released, according to The Sacramento Bee.
