A Santa Barbara man survives a fall down a steep cliff.
Now, he wants to find the man who helped rescue him.
Tuesday night, he was driving east near Camino Cielo when he hit the gravel and plummeted down the cliff.
Victor’s prosthetic leg came off and he was unable to climb up the near 150 foot hill.
Victor had to wait until morning to flag someone down.
That man helped Victor and called 911, waiting for emergency crews to arrive.
“His name is Ernie and I would really like to find Ernie. He disappeared from the scene and I would really like to find him. Had he not found me, I don’t think I would have made it,” said victim James Victor.
Victor still has numerous cuts and bruises, but is just thankful that he is alive.
