In a scary incident, a car was spotted hanging from the fourth floor of the building and a woman was inside the car. This took place on Monday morning in Santa Monica of California when the woman driving the car had accidentally slammed accelerator instead of brake while parking her car in the fourth floor of the Santa Monia parking structure.
The woman was miraculously saved without a single injury. A bystander from France who was vacationing in the area helped rescue the woman, who is likely in her 60s. He helped her out of the car with great difficulty without any injuries. The fire safety team rushed to the spot without any delay and continued rescue operations for an hour.
A photograph shared by the Santa Monica fire department shows the Honda sedan dangling precariously off the edge of the parking. Even the fire department team itself has alerted the people via twitter to avoid using the area.
