"It was like a movie, really. It was so wild. She came out that far with the car and that the car kept hanging there. I mean one foot more and the car probably would have come down all the way. She got really lucky..." witness Roy Huysdens told ABC news. Fire officials secured the vehicle with cables to keep it from falling until a tow truck was brought in and pulled the car back to safety, reported NBC4.
