(SAN MATEO COUNTY, CA) — 2 adults and 2 children survived after their Tesla plunged 250 feet off of a cliff known as Devil’s Slide along the Pacific Coast Highway in California around noon Monday.

The Tesla plummeted off the cliff and flipped several times before landing on its wheels just feet from the surf, according to Brian Pottenger, battalion chief for Cal Fire CZU.

Emergency crews initially listed the victims in critical condition, but all were discovered conscious after movement was detected.

A 4-year-old girl and 9-year-old boy were pulled out of the back window from the Tesla and brought to safety through a rope system. The children are currently receiving treatment for musculoskeletal injuries.

A helicopter hoisted up the 2 adults from the vehicle and were flown to the hospital with traumatic injuries.

Officials are currently investigating the cause of the crash.
