His good physical condition helped save his life, rescuers said.
Stanislav who lives in Cyprus with his wife, also an ex-ballet dancer, was found at the bottom of a 50-metre ravine by police and civil defence workers.
Police suspect he managed to leave the house through the kitchen window and climbed over the fence surrounding his home.
