    Default Dutch chap falls off the World's End !

    World s End sri la 3207662c - Dutch chap falls off the World's End!

    AFP:

    Sri Lankan troops rescued a Dutch honeymooner who became the first person to survive a fall from the World's End, a 4,000-foot (1,200-metre) cliff that is one of the country's main tourist attractions, the military said on Saturday.

    Thirty-five-year-old Mamitho Lendas was on honeymoon in Sri Lanka with his new wife.

    The two were visiting World's End, a tourist attraction in the Horton Plains National Park of Nuwara Eliya.

    Mr Lendas had taken a few steps back to take pictures of his new bride when he flew off the unprotected cliff, army spokesman Brigadier Jayanath Jayaweera said.

    "He was extremely lucky because he fell on top of a tree about 130 feet from the top," Mr Jayaweera told AFP. "He is the first person to survive a fall from World's End."
