After dark sometime between Sunday 26th September night and Monday 27th morning, a silver coloured combi-van plunged approximately 35m over the cliffs of cala conta, coming to rest in the sea below.

Guardia Civil on the scene were able to confirm that the 26 year old female driver had escaped with her life, but no further information regarding her condition was available. It is not known whether there were passengers in the vehicle.

In what looks to be a very lucky escape the Ibiza plated car, possibly a Peugeot, appears to have driven directly off the cliff which is guarded by a simple rope fence.

Speaking to local photographer Alec Bettney who took these photos at the scene, the Officers said there was no suggestion the driver had been drinking and that it looked to be an unfortunate accident with the driver clearly not appreciating the proximity of the cliff in the dark.
