iStock/Thinkstock(BOONE, N.C.) — A man in North Carolina survived 17 hours pinned underneath his vehicle after he fell asleep behind the wheel and drove off a cliff, authorities said.

Joseph Woodring’s vehicle fell at least 60 feet when he went off the road in Boone, N.C., on Tuesday night, according to State Highway Patrol.

The crash launched Woodring, 21, from his vehicle, which landed upside down and pinned him underneath it. He was found Wednesday afternoon.

“He was lying on his side. Both legs were pinned under,” Dale Watson told ABC News affiliate WSOC-TV. “He wanted some water so I give him some water.”

Watson said Woodring told him he fell asleep while driving. It took rescue crews an hour to raise the vehicle off him.

Woodring was taken to the hospital with two broken legs, according to the State Highway Patrol.

iStock/Thinkstock(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) — A man claims he was under a sort of exorcism when he confessed to killing a fellow member of a religious group in Kansas City, Missouri, whose death was originally ruled a suicide.

The body of Bethany Deaton was found Oct. 30, 2012, in the back seat of her minivan with the doors locked and a note inside.

“My name is Bethany Deaton. I chose this evil thing,” the note read, according to court documents. “I did it because I wouldn’t be a real person and what is the point of living if it is too late for that? I wish I had chosen differently a long time ago. I knew it all and refused to listen. Maybe Jesus will still save me.”

Deaton, 27, was a member of a religious group called the International House of Prayer, which was led by her husband, Tyler Deaton. A few weeks after her death, Micah Moore, another member of the group, confessed to her slaying.

Tyler Deaton had a cult-like following within the group and controlled virtually every aspect of some members’ lives, according to court documents.

When Moore confessed, he told police Deaton ordered him to kill his wife to stop her from telling anyone about sexual assaults against her in the house, according to police records. The three lived in a communal house with other male members of the group.

“This is a horrible, horrible crime,” Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said. “A young woman lost her life. She lost her life in a very violent way and today, we do know what happened to her.”

Now Moore claims he only confessed to killing Deaton because he was under the influence of what some have called an exorcism. Moore, who is scheduled for trial next month, has pleaded not guilty.

“They were the statements of a distraught and confused young man,” his attorney, Melanie Morgan, said.

The medical examiner has also changed the manner of Deaton’s death to undetermined.

“We are aware of no evidence that a crime has occurred,” Morgan said.

The International House of Prayer denied any affiliation with Deaton’s group in a statement to ABC News.

Justin Edmonds/Getty Images(FOXBORO, Mass.) — New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick has created many defensive schemes in his 40 years of NFL coaching, but during that time, the man under the hoodie says he’s never faced a quarterback better than Peyton Manning.

“I mean, (Manning is) great, he’s obviously a great quarterback,” Belichick said. “The best quarterback I’ve coached against.”

Belichick’s comments come in the wake of his team’s match-up versus Manning’s Denver Broncos Sunday in Foxboro.

Belichick has schemed against Manning 22 times as either a coordinator or head coach, going 12-10 in those games.

Belichick also said, “I see no weaknesses in (Manning’s) game”.

“I truly appreciate those words because of just the unbelievable productivity and consistency of his teams over the course of his entire career,” Manning said after hearing Belichick’s comments.

The Denver Broncos (6-1) and the New England Patriots (6-2) will square off at Gillette Stadium Sunday. Kickoff is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET.

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(WILMINGTON, Mass.) — The Boston Bruins’ blueline takes another hit.

Torey Krug will miss two to three weeks with a broken finger, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Wednesday morning.

Krug broke the finger after getting slashed during his final shift in the Bruins loss to Minnesota Tuesday night.

Krug joins a growing list of injured Boston defensemen. The B’s are already without captain Zdeno Chara for four to six weeks with a left knee injury and Kevan Miller, who has a dislocated right shoulder.

Despite the growing list of injuries, Bruins center Patrice Bergeron is staying upbeat.

“For us, with our system, it’s about not just about the defensemen, but really the whole aspect of all the guys on the ice and playing a good system,” Bergeron said. “And that’s what we need to have.”

The Bruins (5-6-0, 10pts) re-called defensemen David Warsofsky and Joe Morrow from their AHL affiliate in Providence to pick up the slack.

Brad Mangin/MLB Photos via Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) — Madison Bumgarner on Wednesday pitched five innings of scoreless relief on two days’ rest to lead the San Francisco Giants to their third World Series title in five seasons.

Bumgarner inherited a one-run lead when he came into the game in the fifth inning and maintained it until the end, as the Giants nipped the Kansas City Royals 3-2 in Game 7 of the Fall Classic.

“This is as good as it gets, World Series Game 7,” Bumgarner said. “It’s a pretty stressful one at the same time. We’re just thankful for the opportunity and we’re blessed to have the success that we’ve had.”

The Giants took a quick two-run lead in the top of the second when Michael Morse and Brandon Crawford hit sacrifice flies off Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie. The Royals answered back in the bottom half of the inning. Alex Gordon doubled home Billy Butler and then scored on an Omar Infante sac fly to tie the game.

Guthrie pitched into the fourth inning, where he allowed two singles and was relieved by Kelvin Herrera. Herrera allowed an RBI single to Morse to give the Giants the lead for good.

Giants starting pitcher Tim Hudson lasted only 1 2/3 innings, allowing three hits, two runs and one walk, while striking out one, before being relieved by Jeremy Affeldt.

Affeldt pitched 2 1/3 innings of scoreless ball before giving way to Bumgarner.

Bumgarner (3-0) threw 68 pitches, allowing two hits and no walks while striking out four en route to winning the series MVP. The performance dropped his career World Series ERA to a record-low 0.25.

“That first inning that he came out I could tell he was just trying to get loose a little bit,” Giants catcher Buster Posey said of Bumgarner’s performance. “But after that it was like he was in Game 5. I mean he was just hitting his spots, moving it both sides of the plate, throwing the breaking ball. It’s gotta be one of the greatest performances in postseason history.”
