I'm glad the dog survived - but why are owners so STUPID?! If you know your dog chases rabbits (and almost all spaniels will) then you don't go anywhere near a cliff, or a steep path on a hillside, or a frozen pond with your dog off-lead. An extending lead will allow them to have fun, but also allows you to stop them at the cliff edge!
