Woman survives seven days on radiator water after California crash

Woman Missing a Week Found Alive Down a Cliff

A missing OR woman has been found alive after somehow surviving driving her jeep off a cliff in Northern California's scenic Big Sur.

During those seven days as she struggled to survive and find human contact, her family and police launched a frantic land and air search for her. The search in Monterey County was hampered on some days by heavy fog, which made air searches hard or impossible, the sheriff's department said on Twitter.

Angela Hernandez said she was trying to avoid hitting an animal when she swerved her jeep off the cliff in Big Sur.

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

"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", Detective Rosemerry Blankswade, a spokeswoman for the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office, said to The Mercury News.

Angela Hernandez was rescued from the side of a cliff off Highway 1.

Hernandez had been declared missing when she appeared to vanish after CCTV footage captured her at a Carmel gas station on July 6, around 80km (50 miles) north of Highway 1 where she was found. She was pulled up by ropes and taken to a hospital.

They said Hernandez seemed OK and responsive, and they got help right away.

Ms Hernandez was conscious when she was discovered by Chad and Chelsea Moore, although she had sustained a shoulder injury.

She stayed alive by drinking the water from the radiator of her Jeep Patriot, the Highway Patrol said.

"I just want to thank everybody that helped", Hernandez's sister, Isabel Hernandez told KGO, according to the paper. He didn't say if Hernandez had any food, but said she survived by using the radiator hose from the vehicle to divert water from a nearby creek. Her phone goes straight to voicemail. "You were in that vehicle we just saw and you're alive and you must need help, '" said Chelsea.
