Mystery Man Pulls Driver from SUV Dangling on Edge of Cliff

Mystery Man Pulls Driver from SUV Dangling on Edge of Cliff
An unidentified passer-by pulls the driver from a SUV to safety after the vehicle left Mayfair Drive, traveled downhill and was stopped by a chain link fence just short of a 30-foot vertical drop onto the Bryden Canyon Road, Wednesday, April 15, 2015, in Lewiston, Idaho.

LEWISTON, Idaho —

Jason Warnock from Clarkston, Washington, has been identified as the good Samaritian who  pulled a driver from a car that was dangling off a cliff of an Idaho canyon Wednesday.

Warnock had left the scene before police could identify him. After he was later contacted by authorities, Warnock told police that he had spotted debris in the road and saw the SUV suspended by a chain-link fence.

Warnock attempted to break the window with a multi-tool. He later managed to calm Sitko and convince him to roll down the window.

In an amazing photo, Warnock can be seen pulling him from the vehicle.

Reports indicate that Mathew Sitko had been driving his GMC Yukon when he left the roadway and drove through a yard before crashing into a chain-link fence preventing him from plummeting into the canyon.

The driver sustained minor injuries and was taken to the hospital. Police thanked Warnock for helping Sitko.
