WATCH: Thai navy rescues climber stuck on cliff

A A

A Greek climber stuck on a cliff for more than three hours was rescued by a Thai navy helicopter Tuesday.

Video of the rescue shows 37-year-old Bouras Theodoros getting lifted off of a cliff on the popular tourist destination Koh Lan Island in Thailand.

As Theodoros hung nearly a thousand feet above sea level, a rescue boat spotted the climber and alerted a naval base for help.

Rescuers approached him in a Seahawk and used a rope to bring him up to safety.

Safe, but extremely fatigued, Theodoros was treated at the Sattahip Naval Base.
