After a night of getting drunk this Ukrainian tourist who has a hangover will leave the taxpayers with a huge rescue bill and a night he will never forget. Following a night on the town, enjoying the best in 100 proof liquid refreshments, this 19 year old man wound up getting stuck and passing out halfway down a cliff he was scaling near Manly. Rescue workers were alerted by a fisherman and found that the man was asleep on his back on a ledge 30 m above sea level at North Head early the next morning. While the man will only be charged the cost of a trip to the hospital, as little as $700, the rescue operation will cost taxpayers at least $10,000. The man who repeatedly shook the man’s leg to wake him so he could be safely winched back up, Garth Thomson, said he had never seen anything like this in his ambulance career of 15 years.
