Man survives for days after car plunges off cliff

CASTAIC, Calif. (AP) -- The children of a 67-year-old man who survived for five or six days on leaves and creek water after his car plunged 200 feet off a California mountain road says one of the first things he asked for was a chocolate malt.

Chardonnay, Sean and Lisa Lavau described Friday on NBC's "Today" show how they found their father's car in a ravine Thursday.

Another car and a dead man were found nearby. Officers are trying to figure out what happened.

Chardonnay Lavau says the family reported David Lavau missing, then worked with detectives to narrow the search area using cell phone towers, text messages and other clues.

Lavau had rib fractures, a dislocated shoulder, a broken arm and multiple fractures in his back. He is expected to undergo surgery.
