A holidaymaker who plunged twelve feet from cliffs at Newquay tells Pirate FM he's lucky to be alive.

Mark Colvill landed on his feet and injured his spine at Fistral beach.

He was airlifted to hospital after his son rang 999.

This after Pirate FM told you thirteen people have died off the Cornish coast in a year.

Mark is warning other families, he said: "Don't think you are safe, because the chance is you're not, I never thought that sort of thing would happen to me, I've seen the programmes on television, that's never going to happen, no, but it does.

"I've fallen into a situation, I've made them [rescue crews] go towards the same place I am, I'm airlifted out, how do they get out without hurting themselves, rocks cut so much, we must remember safety."
