Doctor recounts Calif. plunge survivor's accident
Doctor: Survivor blinded by oncoming headlights before 200-foot plunge from Calif. road
By The Associated Press

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) ' A physician says a 67-year-old man found alive after his car plunged 200 feet off a California mountain road some six days ago told him he was temporarily blinded by oncoming headlights but doesn't think he hit the other vehicle.

Dr. Garrett Sutter, an emergency room physician at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, told a press conference Friday that David Lavau was in serious but stable condition after his ordeal and should be released in three to four days.

Lavau's three children found their father Thursday afternoon after a detective narrowed his whereabouts to a treacherous mountain road about 50 miles northwest of Los Angeles. Lavau had survived by eating leaves and bugs and drinking creek water.

A second car with a body in it was found nearby.
