Chilling online video reveals the second a suicidal father drove his truck off a cliff in San Diego with his 2-yr-previous twin daughters inside of before all 3 had been rescued.
The guy plunged off Sunset Cliffs about 4:30 a.m. on Saturday immediately after threatening his wife that he would do so, KNSD claimed.
Extraordinary surveillance footage posted to Facebook by CBS News 8 reporter Abbie Alford exhibits the man’s pickup truck with its headlights on as it shoots in excess of the edge and falls roughly 30 feet into the water.
The movie displays the big splash the car or truck created on influence with the water.
A further auto was closely powering, though it’s unclear if it was a law enforcement auto.
But officers responded swiftly and were being ready to save the father and his daughters.
San Diego Police K-9 Officer, Jonathan Wiese, was 1 of the very first cops on the scene and told KNSD that he repelled down the cliffside to get to the household.
Recounting to the outlet what he saw when he made it down to the water, Wiese stated, “He experienced the two ladies,” referring to the father.
“He was holding them and seeking to tread drinking water, but they ended up all likely beneath. 1 was awake and crying the other one was fairly lifeless.”
Wiese managed to get the group out of the h2o and on to a close by rock.
The father and a person of his 2-calendar year-aged daughters suffered slight accidents. The other daughter was taken to the hospital in crucial issue, but was expected to get well.
