Proof positive they should have competancy requirements before someone is allowed to purchase a car like that.

It's all about how/where you land. There has been some crazy arse stories of people falling 100s feet and walking away with little injury.

RARELY but it happens.
I think it works kind of like those Bugs Bunny cartoons...you just step out a second before it hits the ground. It's really all about the timing.

A couple of years ago, I had a close call and would have ended up like that as well. I fell asleep at the wheel and luckily was in the right lane, so I had enough enough time to wake up and swerve the car back to the right to avoid falling off a cliff.
