Cliffhanger: Man asleep on cliff edge


A 19-year-old Ukrainian man has been rescued from the steep side of a cliff in Sydney, Australia, after apparently falling fast asleep.

A fisherman noticed the tourist on the cliff dressed only in shorts, and alerted the authorities.

Gary Sinclair from the New South Wales Ambulance Service said it appeared he had just wanted to have a look at the sunrise.
