UK man survives 200 feet fall down cliff face

Police in northeast England say they've rescued a 53-year-old man who fell 200 feet (60 meters) down a cliff face while trying to rescue his dog.
North Yorkshire police say the man, who wasn't named, was rescued by a RAF helicopter and airlifted to a hospital.
They said Tuesday it is remarkable that the man survived and his injuries _ including a broken leg and wrist _ were not life-threatening. The dog also survived the fall.
The incident took place Monday at Little Cliff, near the village of Cloughton on England's northeastern shore.
