OR woman found alive after missing for more than a week

Authorities tend to Angela Hernandez after she was rescued, in Morro Bay, California. She used that radiator hose to collect the water from that natural spring in the cliff...

A Portland woman shared harrowing details about her fight for survival after her auto plummeted over a California cliff.

Hikers spotted her vehicle at the bottom of the cliff seven days after she disappeared. A $10,000 reward notice for information on her whereabouts was also posted.

On Friday the 13th, her luck changed.

"I walked farther south down the beach than I ever had before and heard a dripping sound", she wrote on Facebook. But the 23-year-old from Portland, Oregon, does remember waking up trapped in her SUV in the Pacific Ocean and the seven long days that she fought to survive. "I'm so happy", Angela's sister Isabel Hernandez said in a video posted to Facebook. She veered off the edge of a cliff, police said, and crashed about 200 feet below, where the ocean meets a rocky beach that is largely isolated from those driving above it.

Emergency personnel used ropes to pull the woman up from the bottom of the cliff

The Monterey County Sheriff's Office has scheduled a press conference later today to discuss additional details of the rescue. Deputies in California asked for help tracking her down and called her disappearance suspicious.

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 slept for a little while". Rescuers arrived Friday and found Hernandez's white Jeep Patriot partially submerged in water.

Later that day her cell phone mysteriously pinged in Santa Cruz County. On her Facebook page, she has recounted those first moments trapped in the vehicle with a brain hemorrhage, six broken bones and a collapsed lung. "I knew we found a girl who needs help and I knew we were going to get her off that beach that night". "It's day seven and you guys helped us through the whole thing and Angela would not be OK" without you.

"In her accident, she has lost everything". She broke a window to escape her vehicle.

"I was definitely in shock", Moore said.
