Woman survives 7 days at bottom of cliff after crash

Angela Hernandez

Hernandez was last seen south of Half Moon Bay on July 6.

Hernandez told investigators she swerved to avoid hitting an animal on Highway 1 on July 6 and plunged over the cliff north of Nacimiento Fergusson Road. "Reports are she was talking and could walk". She was happy at the same time!

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.

He says the woman had an injured shoulder.

Editor's note: The original post stated Hernandez drank radiator fluid, not water from the radiator. Her vehicle was partially in the water. About 8 a.m. July 6, she notified her family that she was continuing the drive, the flier said. She was pulled up by ropes and taken to a hospital, he said, but her condition was not immediately known.

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

A GoFundMe account has been set up by her sister.

Angela Hernandez was rescued from the side of a cliff off Highway 1. It's not going to be an easy recovery.

Hernandez was driving from Portland to Southern California when she mysteriously disappeared and fell out of communication with her family, officials said.

Later that day her cell phone mysteriously pinged in Santa Cruz County. Rescuers from the California Highway Patrol, the State Parks Department and local fire departments "responded and were able to bring her back to the roadway". Everybody that ... helped us through the whole thing and Angela will be OK.

"In her accident, she has lost everything". Apparently, she'd been there for a week after her vehicle went off the road.

"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.
