Woman survived 7 days after driving off California cliff

Woman Missing a Week Found Alive Down a Cliff

Angela Hernandez, 23, was found on Friday after hikers noticed her Jeep Patriot SUV partially submerged at the bottom of a cliff in the Big Sur area.

Rescuers got her to the top of the cliff, where a helicopter flew her to hospital.

Hikers spotted her auto at the bottom of the cliff seven days after she disappeared.

She was in fair and stable condition but appeared to have suffered a concussion during the collision, the California Highway Patrol said in a statement. Authorities determined that Hernandez's vehicle had been in Monterey County about 9:30 a.m. July 6 because it was captured on a business security camera, the San Mateo Sheriff's Office said on Twitter.

The details of her accident remain unclear, but one theory is that she lost control on a winding stretch of road.

Editor's note: The original post stated Hernandez drank radiator fluid, not water from the radiator. The woman survived by drinking her wrecked car's radiator water until she was discovered by hikers.

The 23-year-old raised alarm when she was unreachable by her family on July 6.

Sheriffs said she had told her sister she would stay overnight in a auto park before continuing her journey the next morning, but they had not heard from her after 6 July.

Isabel Hernandez, wrote: "My sister is alive, she's talking, and she's still trying to come to understand everything". It's not going to be an easy recovery.

"A couple found her lying there and immediately called for help". Isabel Hernandez, her sister, thanked the people who looked for her.

The family started a GoFundMe page to aid in financing Angela's search efforts that will now be used to help in her recovery process. "Including her vehicle, which was her livelihood", she said.

Hernandez had spoken to her sister from Half Moon Bay, where she had spent the night, on the morning of July 6 before setting off on the final leg of her journey, according to San Francisco ABC station KGO.
