Kingman-Area Man Survives Four Days in Nasty Weather Following a 150-Foot Fall

  A Kingman-area man fell off a 150-foot cliff near his home and was stranded for four days in rainy, cold weather before being found.

Merideth Isom, 66, was walking on his property about 10 miles north of Kingman, intending to give treats to his dog, when he fell off the cliff, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

After suffering various cuts and bruises, Isom couldn't leave the spot. Remember that storm that hit Arizona earlier this week? Isom was out in it, without shelter, food or clothing. 

Neighbors discovered he was missing yesterday morning and called authorities.


One rescuer is quoted in the article as saying Isom's survival was a "miracle."

Some people need pool fences, but it sounds like Isom's backyard needs a cliff fence.
