  • Woman survives after SUV plunges off cliff

A 23-year-old OR musician who had been missing for a week was found alive at the bottom of a California cliff in the wreckage of her auto, where she survived on water from her Jeep's radiator.

Deputies from the Monterey County Sheriff's Office found 23-year-old Angela Hernandez of Portland at the bottom of a cliff along California's coastal Highway 1 near Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park.

Sheriff's officials told the San Francisco Chronicle they are unsure exactly when her auto went over the cliff, but said she may have been there for several days.

She was in a fair and stable condition but appeared to have suffered a concussion, the California Highway Patrol said. Big Sur Fire, the CHP and Monterey County Sheriff responded to the scene. She was flown by helicopter to a hospital.

Andrea Hernandez, 23, was reported missing July 6 when she failed to show up at her sister's house in Southern California, police said.

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

To stay hydrated, Hernandez reportedly used a radiator hose from her vehicle to siphon water from a nearby stream. It's not going to be an easy recovery.

Hernandez told her rescuers she had been at the bottom of the cliff for a week. She says she has been there since July 6.

Hernandez's Jeep Patriot apparently ran off Highway 1, the north-south highway that hugs the Pacific coastline.

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

When she was found her auto was partially submerged in the water and she was able to walk and talk as police scaled down the cliff on ropes to hoist her to safety on Friday.
