A TOURIST plunged 130ft from a cliff while posing for the "perfect photo" with his tour guide.
Alvalino Kesanda, 27, reportedly was taking photos near the edge when he attempted a somersault while on a trip in Bali.
He missed his landing and ended up plunging down onto the rocks and below.
The Bali Sun reports the tourist was trying to get the "perfect photo".
But by a miracle the man, from Indonesia, survived his fall – but was left with a broken arm, leg and bleeding heavily.
With the tide rushing in however, what followed was an urgent effort to save his life.
