Woman found alive 1 week after driving off a California cliff

An Oregon woman who disappeared a week ago was rescued from the bottom of a California coastal cliff where she survived by drinking water from the radiator of her wrecked sports utility vehicle, authorities said yesterday.

Angela Hernandez, 23, was last heard from on July 6, and investigators with the Monterey County Sheriff's Office told KPTV her disappearance was suspicious.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that she was found Friday by hikers in the remote area, seven days after she went over the cliff.

Angela Hernandez is found at the bottom of a cliff in Monterey County, California July 13, 2018 in picture obtained from social media. She was flown by helicopter to a hospital.

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.

She and her vehicle were last seen on a CCTV camera at a petrol station on 6 July, 50 miles north of where she was found.

Hernandez was driving from OR to her sister's home in southern California when she went missing, officials said.

She told officers that she had swerved to avoid an animal in the road, and gone off the edge.

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

"I know everyone on the West Coast and probably across the nation is thankful to know she is alive and on the road to recovery", Blankswade said. It's not going to be an easy recovery.

Thornburg said the vehicle landed 200-250 feet down the cliff and was partially submerged.

"A couple found her lying there and immediately called for help".
