In a survival story fit for Hollywood, a woman has been found alive a week after she plunged off a California cliff in her jeep.

Angela Hernandez, from OR, was found by hikers on Friday evening after they saw the wreckage of her SUV partially submerged at the bottom of a 200ft (61m) cliff in the Big Sur area.

Reports say 23-year-old Angela Hernandez was heading to Southern California to see family from Portland when she accidentally drove over a cliff on July 6th.

Angela Hernandez, 23, survived by drinking water from the radiator of her wrecked jeep, police said. Photos posted on Facebook showed Hernandez sitting on the rocky coastline as she received medical care. She had been driving on the scenic coastal road from her home in Portland to Los Angeles.

Hernandez had a shoulder injury and concussion, but could walk and talk, according to officials. Fog did not allow for an air search.

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

"Angela Hernandez has been located and is being transported to the hospital", the sheriff's office tweeted just after 11 p.m. Friday. On the morning of July 6 she texted her sister saying she was hitting the road before she suddenly went off the grid. "She was found by two people walking in the area, who called 911".

Later that day her cell phone mysteriously pinged in Santa Cruz County. She says she met so many attractive people, ' Isabel added on Facebook thanking everyone who aided in the search and rescue effort.

Sheriff's officials told the San Francisco Chronicle they are unsure exactly when her vehicle went over the cliff, but said she may have been there for several days. "I hope everyone will have patience for her and her recovery". Everybody that ... helped us through the whole thing and Angela will be OK.
