Tourist rescues driver from car dangling over edge of California parking structure
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – A tourist rescued a woman from her car as it dangled precariously off the side of a multi-story parking garage in the Los Angeles area late Monday morning, officials said. Fire Capt. Patrick Nulty told KTLA the driver, a woman in her 60s, was parking in a space when she inadvertently hit the accelerator instead of the brake. That nearly propelled the vehicle off the fifth floor of the structure, but safety cables that serve as a barrier prevented the car from plummeting off, he said.
