Watch: Terrifying moment as off-road rider falls off cliff

This video shows the moment an off-road rider was sent tumbling off a cliff while out for a ride with his friends.

The rider, Adrian, was riding with his buddies when he either misjudged or was unable to see the edge of the cliff they were riding on. Luckily, despite how big the cliff appears, Adrian survived, although he required a visit from both Mountain Rescue and the local Air Ambulance.

In a Facebook post, Adrian said:

I would like to say a massive thank you to my family and friends for their concern at this time, I am very lucky to be still alive! I’d like to give a big shoutout to the mountain rescue, air ambulance crew, medical staff and anyone else that has helped me pull through this.

Also a big shoutout to the boys for reassuring and comforting me while the help was on its way, and to anyone that rides off road bikes always be aware of your surroundings as all it takes is one silly mistake like mine and it could be game over! I got off very lucky!

It’s not entirely clear how Adrian ended up riding off the cliff, but it appears he misjudged a jump just before the cliff edge, which seems to come out of nowhere. Footage like this is never great to watch, but thankfully Adrian appears to be ok.
