Unfortunately, the lorry driver was not so lucky as he suffered a number of broken bones and is now recovering in hospital.

This incredible footage from Sunday afternoon shows the moment a man leaps from a tow truck as it was being pulled down a cliff.

The vehicle was towing a lorry along a snow covered road in Leirosen, Norway before it began to veer too close to the edge and began to slip down the cliff.

Although the lorry driver suffered a number of broken bones, he's fortunate to be still alive. He is now recovering in the hospital.
