After plunging 150 feet from Grizzly Peak Boulevard in the Oakland hills and surviving more than three days without food or water, Northgate High School science teacher Jim Wright is resting comfortably, Principal John McMorris assured parents in a message today.

“I know many of you have read in the paper or watched the story on television regarding Northgate science teacher Jim Wright’s accident and rescue,” McMorris wrote. “I have spoken to Mr. Wright’s wife Linda; she tells me he is doing well and the entire family is very grateful to the Northgate community for the support Jim has received the past few years at Northgate. We wish him a speedy recovery and send our best thoughts and prayers to his family.”
