Calif. man whose car went off cliff recuperating
CA man whose car plunged 200 feet down mountain ravine remains hospitalized in intensive care
By The Associated Press

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) ' The man who survived for six days after his car plunged 200 feet down a mountain ravine is continuing to recuperate at a Southern California hospital.

Son-in-law Jesse Hooker says David Lavau remains in intensive care Monday but is recovering.

Lavau's family found him at the bottom of the ravine 50 miles northwest of Los Angeles on Thursday. The 68-year-old Lake Hughes man says he survived by eating bugs and leaves and drinking water from a creek.

An 88-year-old man, whose car went off the road in the same area two weeks before, was killed. His body wasn't located until Lavau was found.

Lavau had surgery Saturday to repair a broken left arm and dislocated shoulder.

It's not known when he'll be released.
