A British dad filmed a video from atop a towering rock formation predicting instant death for anyone who fell — only to plummet himself, miraculously surviving a 200-foot fall.

Imran Choudhury, 36, told YorkshireLive how he got passersby to take pics in February as he stood on the Trinnacle landmark on Saddleworth Moor while training for a charity trek.

After his fall, Imran Choudhury was in an induced coma for three weeks.

“I did a live video for social media and actually said at the end of it, if someone fell from here that would be the end for them,” The dad from Oldham recalled.

“I started to climb down and that’s the last thing I remember.”

The passersby who took his photo saw him plunge 200 feet before he was left stuck on a 50-degree slope in the ravine.

After being rescued by an air ambulance chopper, Choudhury ended up in an induced coma for three weeks with two broken skull bones, one of which penetrated his brain and caused serious internal bleeding.

He also broke his shoulder, shoulder blade, spinal bone, a small bone in his leg left and badly damaged his right leg in six places, he told YorkshireLive.

“When I woke up from the coma I didn’t know where I was or what had happened. I thought that I was in Bangladesh,” he told the local outlet.

“It took some time to realize the extent of my injuries,” he said.

He said that he “wouldn’t be here today” if not for the strangers who called for help and then assisted the rescue mission.
