Sleepwalking camper falls 60 feet off a cliff

A man with a history of sleepwalking was found by his friends at the foot of a 60-ft (20 meter) cliff in Kentucky nestled between rocks and boulders, but was lucky to have miraculously survived the fall.

Ohio man, Ryan Campbell,27, was camping with his friends at the Red River Gorge in Daniel Boone National Forest last week when colleagues found him missing around 1:15 am. He reportedly fell asleep on a hammock, and one of their friends noticed him get up and walk towards the cliff.

Campbell is believed to have a history of sleepwalking, but remains undiagnosed.

He suffered head injury, a dislocated shoulder and a fractured leg, but none was deemed life threatening. He is expected to recover soon.

Rescuers said Campbell must have fallen onto a bush which may have cushioned his fall and saved him from more serious or even fatal injuries.

Rescuers took several hours before they could lift Campbell to safety and take him to a nearby hospital for treatment. (Click here to read more)
