Angela Hernandez, 23, of Portland was found by a pair of hikers on Friday evening after they saw her wrecked Jeep Patriot SUV partially submerged at the bottom of a 200-foot cliff in the Big Sur area, said Monterey County Sheriff's Office spokesman John Thornburg.
Rescuers managed to get her up the cliff and to a helicopter which flew her to a nearby hospital.
"My sister is alive, she's talking, and she's still trying to come to understand everything", Isabel Hernandez wrote on Facebook on Saturday.
Officials had been looking along Highway 1, which borders the Pacific Ocean, and Big Sur after surveillance video showed her leaving a gas station near Carmel on July 6, about 25 miles north of where she was found.
Angela Hernandez, 23, was last heard from in Half Moon Bay, Calif., on July 6, according to Fox affiliate KTVU. Hernandez was injured but able to walk and talk, according to Monterey County Sheriff's Cmdr. It's not going to be an easy recovery. Her auto was seen on a gas station surveillance camera south of Carmel last Friday morning.
Her sister shared her relief on Facebook saying: "She's a fighter and she fought this long and she will continue to". Calls to her cell phone went straight to voice mail.
The money raised is now to be donated to Ms Hernandez, her sister said.
She was found conscious and breathing, lying outside of her vehicle by the hikers after 6:30pm on Friday. Everybody that ... helped us through the whole thing and Angela will be OK.
"In her accident, she has lost everything".
Isabel Hernandez set up a GoFundMe to help with her sister's medical costs and buy her a new auto, which had reached $3,470 of its $6,000 goal by Sunday morning.
'Thank you all for everything. for her rescue and for bringing her up the cliff. She says she met so many handsome people for her rescue and help bringing her up the cliff.
