In California, a girl fell off a cliff and drank water from a radiator for a week to survive
A resident of Oregon, who disappeared a week ago, was found alive at the bottom of an ocean cliff in Big Sur, California. 22-year-old Angela Hernandez survived in the wreckage of her SUV, using a radiator hose from a car to extract water from a nearby stream.
Hernandez seriously injured his shoulder, but could walk and talk, a spokeswoman for the Monterey County Sheriff's office said. CNN. In a photo posted on Facebook, Angela sits on a rock while she is being treated. The woman was lifted upstairs with the help of ropes, after which she was taken to the hospital. The exact information about her condition is not provided by the authorities.
The Jeep Patriot, on which the young woman was riding, suddenly flew off the highway, going around the Pacific coastline. Hernandez was heading from Portland to Lancaster to visit her family. Around July 10, on the evening of July 5, Angela wrote to her relatives that she was very tired and stopped for the night in a car in a parking lot near a grocery store in Half Moon Bay.
At about 8 am the next day, the woman wrote to the family that she had continued to move. After that, no information was received about her, and the phone was redirected to the function of voice messages. On the same day, July 6, the family raised the alarm - and the police began looking for Angela. Everyone was alarmed that the girl is an avid user of social networks, and a complete lack of activity is not typical for her.
The missing woman's jeep hit a video surveillance camera in Monterey County around the morning of July 6th 9.30. On the same day, thick fog hung over Monterey, which made it difficult to search from the air. Last Friday, a week after the woman disappeared, two people walked late in the evening in the Big Sur district. They accidentally saw a broken jeep at the bottom of the cliff, then returned to their campsite and called 911.
The car flew about 200-250 feet (60-75 meters) down the cliff and partially was in the water. Hernandez got out of it, but could not get to the top because of the sharp stones and the general inaccessibility of the scene. It is not known if she had food, but the police reported that the woman drank water from the stream with the help of a radiator hose from the car.
