Tow truck brought in to save car teetering on cliff accidentally pushes it over the edge

A tow truck sent to rescue a car teetering on the edge of a cliff accidentally pushed the vehicle off after the driver lost control.

The video of the incident, which has been shared online, shows the driver of the rescue vehicle reversing down a steep incline towards a black car.

It clearly shows the car balancing on the edge of the cliff, as the truck inches slowly towards it.

But moments later, it becomes clear that the rescue mission is not going to plan.

The truck loses control and tips the car over the cliff edge

As the truck continues to reverse down the hill, the driver loses control, causing the vehicle to veer off course.

Despite turning the steering wheel in several directions, the truck driver is unable to stop the vehicle as it careers towards the precariously balanced car.

The car falls straight off the ledge and into the sea

Inevitably, the truck hits the stranded vehicle moments later, causing it to plunge over the edge of the cliff.

It then crashes onto a ledge below before falling straight into the water and disappearing from site.

It is not clear where the footage was filmed but the clip has already been viewed several thousand times in just 16 hours on LiveLeak.com.
