An Oregon woman survived for a week after driving her car over a coastal cliff in California before she was discovered by chance by a couple on a camping trip.
Chelsea and Chad Moore were hiking Friday when they spotted a Jeep Liberty at the bottom of a 200-foot cliff, the Sacramento Bee reports. They gathered items from the scene, including the Jeep’s license plate, to bring to authorities and then located the driver, 23-year-old Angela Hernandez, who was discovered injured but in stable condition.
Authorities used climbing gear to reach Hernandez, who told authorities that she lost control after swerving to avoid hitting an animal. To stay hydrated, Hernandez told officials she used a radiator hose from her vehicle to siphon water from a stream.
