In a miraculous development, a pregnant Lubavitcher woman found herself lucky after she survived a 50-foot fall off a sheer cliff while on a hike with her family near the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.
Relaying the incident to a prominent Jewish media house was the woman’s husband, who said, “I was ahead with one of the kids when suddenly my daughter comes screaming to me ‘Mommy fell off the cliff.’ If you would see this cliff, you would think that’s it, it’s finished.”
The dangerous cliff has rocks protruding from it top to bottom and ends near the water’s edge, thus proving to be a combination of deadly features that threatens the life of anyone who falls off it. These facts made the woman’s fall an even miraculous one.
The husband told the media that he was shocked when he shouted down at his wife, who responded by saying that she was okay. Several men nearby went to help the woman and emergency personnel was called in to rescue her. Soon afterward, around 15 firefighters rappelled down the cliff to assist the injured woman and evacuated her by boat before transferring her to a hospital for treatment, where doctors concluded that she and her unborn baby had suffered only minor, non-life-threatening injuries.
