Melbourne, Aug 5 (IANS) A German couple had a miraculous escape with only minor injuries after their car swerved off the road and plummeted 150 metres down a cliff in Australia’s Victoria state.
The two tourists were travelling along the Northern Grampians Road at Zumsteins, when the 30-year-old woman driver lost control and the car tipped over the cliff at about 3 p.m. Wednesday, the Herald Sun reported.

“The car rolled down the cliff going end over end, finishing up near the base of the cliff,” a police spokesman said.

The man, 34, managed to get out of the car, but the woman was trapped inside. She was later rescued by the emergency crew and was taken to a hospital.
