Rescue personnel descended from the cliff to rescue the family. Then Patel’s wife was screaming. She said that her husband deliberately pushed the car down from the cliff. But after that she refused to say anything against her husband. But Wagstaff said that the circumstantial evidence found against Patel was sufficient. Patel deliberately drove down the car to kill the family.
Patel was to be produced in court on Monday. But his lawyer Josh Bentley asked the court for a deadline of February 9. The court accepted this demand. But the court refused to grant bail to Patel. The court ordered that Patel should stay away from his family.
Patel works as a radiologist at a hospital in Southern California. Patel and his family were traveling along the South Pacific Coast Highway, 24 kilometers from San Francisco, on January 2. Patel was traveling by car with his 41-year-old wife, 7-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son. At that time, he threw the car down from the Devil’s Slide. His car was found 76 meters down. Devil’s Slide is considered extremely dangerous. It is very difficult to save life after falling down from there. Therefore, saving the lives of Patel and his family is considered a miracle.
