A woman had to be rescued from her SUV on Thursday, when she drove it over the side of a parking garage and was left dangling precariously from the second floor.

It’s unclear how or why the driver went through the wire barrier of the parking garage in Miami Springs, but people at a nearby medical school spotted the dangling car around 4 p.m. and called police, according to Local 10.

Emergency responders showed up at the scene and anchored the vehicle while firefighters worked to pull the woman out of the car.

Investigators are now looking into what caused the incident in the first place.

Battalion Chief Danny Cardeso told Local 10 that the driver “did not say exactly how it happened.”
