“A true miracle”: a family of 4 survived a a 250-foot drop aboard a Tesla


A family of four survived a 250+ foot fall from a Tesla in California.  

A 4-year-old girl, a 9-year-old boy and two adults had the scare of their lives when their car fell off a cliff in Northern California, near of the Devil's Slide, known for its fatal accidents. 

The car, a Tesla sedan, tumbled off the cliff before landing in a pile of rock. The Devil's Slide, which is located about 20 miles from San Francisco, is the cause of several fatal accidents each year.

The authorities in the region do not believe that the Tesla was in autopilot mode . They still don't know what caused the crash. 

“We always go there for crashing motorists, and no one ever survives. It's a real miracle,” Brian Pottenger, a firefighter at the scene, told CBS News. 

According to CBS Bay Area, the adults suffered minor injuries; the two children escape unscathed.
