London, September 12 (ANI): Nine-year-old Jak Theyer stunned all when he plunged 60ft off a cliff and landed on his feet.

The lucky Jak somehow missed crashing on to two rocks and landed on sand in between them.

And amazingly his only injury was a minor fracture to his pelvis.

It was like being Buzz Lightyear except my wings didnt come out, the Sun quoted him, as saying.

He had gone to the beach at Gwithian, Cornwall, with his two grandmothers, sister Daisy, six, and three-year-old brother Callum.

Excited Jak ran on to the cliff-top path from the car park and shot straight over the edge landing next to a stunned woman sunbather.

Jak, of Newbury, Berks, said: I suddenly realised there was a cliff and I couldnt stop.

I had to jump and there were rocks at the bottom but I managed to land between a big one and a smaller one.

He was flown to hospital in Truro by air ambulance, but after a battery of tests doctors could only find two fine cracks in his pelvis. (ANI)
