Missing Woman Found Alive 7 Days After Car Plunges Off Big Sur Cliff


I’t hard to imagine all the thoughts that must have gone through her mind while she waited in her car, not knowing if she would ever be found alive.

An Oregon woman whose Jeep plunged off a Big Sur, California, cliff was found alive on a rocky beach seven days after she was reported missing, police said Friday.

Authorities were alerted by a couple who spotted the woman’s white Jeep and heard her cries for help Friday evening, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Deputies from the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office found 23-year-old Angela Hernandez of Portland at the bottom of a cliff along California’s coastal Highway 1 near Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. “Angela was found about 200 feet down a cliff.

Her vehicle was partially in the water,” the sheriff’s office said. Rescuers from the California Highway Patrol, the State Parks Department and local fire departments “responded and were able to bring her back to the roadway. She was transported by ambulance to a waiting helicopter, then to the hospital. Reports are she was talking and could walk.”Via huffingtonpost.com

Thankfully she received only minor injuries and has already rejoined her family.
