    parking garage accident

A woman is lucky to be alive after her car plummeted off the seventh story of a notorious parking garage in Austin, Texas.

The BMW is the second car to plummet from the building in 12 months.

Before hitting the ground the BMW clips the back of another vehicle, which was reversing down the alley.

According to reports, the garage has concrete parking curbs and five half-inch-wide steel cables, spaced apart. Each cable is said to be rated to hold a 2700kg static load.

However, with the parking structure over 30 years old, questions have been asked as to how safe it really is.
