A Real Cliff-Hanger

LONDON -- A 34-year-old British man found himself hanging on for dear life after walking over the edge of a cliff -- in his sleep.


Ian Smith's cries for help Sunday were heard by a neighbor who called the emergency services to rescue him from his perch 10 meters above the incoming tide near Torquay in the south west of England.


Smith, who lives only a short distance from the cliff, said Monday his last memory before he woke up was of dreaming that he was lying on a ledge.
