A man and his dog survived a 200-foot fall down a remote cliff face in southern England, authorities said Sunday.
Coast guards say the man's car went over a cliff near the town of Swanage early Sunday morning.
Local police believe the man was thrown clear of his vehicle when it fell halfway down the 400-foot cliff.
They said the man was found barely conscious near the crumpled wreckage of his vehicle. The car had crashed onto a large ledge on the cliff face. Both the man's legs were broken.
The coast guards said the man's dog, a black New Zealand sheepdog named Zin Zan, could not be found. The dog later made its own way home and was discovered underneath the kitchen table.
