Woman survives seven days on radiator water after California crash

Woman survives seven days on radiator water after California crash

A pair of San Luis Obispo County residents who were camping in Big Sur became unlikely heroes Friday, locating an OR woman who had been missing for seven days after driving her vehicle over a cliff.

Angela Hernandez, from OR, was found by hikers on Friday evening after they saw the wreckage of her SUV partially submerged at the bottom of a 200ft (61m) cliff in the Big Sur area. The department tweeted Friday evening to say that Hernandez was safe after she'd been reported missing some six days earlier.

Alone on the desolate shore for seven days, she survived by using her radiator hose to siphon water from a nearby stream, according to KGO-TV.

Hernandez was last seen south of Half Moon Bay on July 6.

Hernandez was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

After she was rescued, Hernandez told authorities she drove off the road when she swerved to avoid an animal, according to the Chronicle.

Emergency personnel used ropes to pull the woman up from the bottom of the cliff

Andrea Hernandez, 23, was reported missing July 6 when she failed to show up at her sister's house in Southern California, police said. It's not going to be an easy recovery.

Once located, deputies confirmed that it was Angela Hernandez and that she was being transported to the hospital.

She said she lost control of her white Jeep Patriot near Nacimiento Fergusson Road at the south end of Big Sur State Park. "Her vehicle was partially in the water", the sheriff's office said.

"This is very traumatic and will be a slow recovery process", she said.

Late Friday, two people walking in Big Sur noticed the SUV wreckage at the bottom of a cliff, Thornburg said.

"My sister is alive, she's talking, and she's still trying to come to understand everything", Angela's sister, Isabel Hernandez, wrote on Facebook Saturday morning.
