PHEONIX, Ariz. (KPNX) – A woman who lost control of her car along Arizona’s US-60 and crashed through a fence survived for six days before she was finally rescued.

According to the Arizona Department of Public Safety, the 53-year-old woman crashed through the fence near milepost 117 on October 12 and fell 50 feet. 

Her car landed in a mesquite tree and remained suspended above the ground.

Once standing by the damaged fence, the ADOT worker and rancher saw the woman’s mangled car about 50-feet down in a tree.
