Mr Bukhari told NeedToKnow.online: ‘The fall down happened all so quick that I just remember the animal hitting me and me falling off the edge seeing my friends reaction.

‘I didn’t realise how high we were until I was all the way down.

‘The locals arrived immediately with ropes. Some even climbed down to tie the ropes around me, and guided my steps back up.’
