This is why you should always back up to cliffs that you want to stand on top of, so you can run away faster!

    A little background: In case you were wondering how someone just happened to be filming this, the guy with the camera was “geologist Richard Hocking – a soils and materials engineer for Cornwall Council”; he and others had noticed cracks at the top of the cliff, and just a few days earlier a footpath had been re-routed away from the dangerous area.

    I don’t think you could run fast enough to escape that. You’d be several meters below the new edge before you figured out what happened.
