A three-year-old boy fell 150 feet down Llanrhaeadr Waterfall on Sunday, but miraculously survived with nothing more than cuts and bruises.

The Shropshire Star reported that the boy, from the Liverpool area, was scrambling up the left side of the waterfall with his aunt, but onlookers were stunned when they both fell.

The woman became wedged in a tree after a 20-foot stumble, but the unnamed youngster fell all the way down and, thankfully, into a deep pool at the foot of Wales’s tallest waterfall.

A rescuer jumped in to pluck him out of the water and an Air Ambulance arrived within 20 minutes but, miraculously, he was given a clean bill of health.

Phil Facey, owner of the café next to the foot of the Waterfall, told the Shropshire Star that the waterfall had always been seen as a sacred place to him and said: “Something really special happened here on Sunday.

“When they fell she became wedged in a tree after falling about 20 feet but the little boy seemed to fly through the air, arms flailing and landed in the pool at the foot of the waterfall.” 

“A chap dived in and brought him up to the surface. I thought he was dead, he looked blue. Maybe miracles do happen.”

The woman was helped to safety by a climber who had been close by.
