A woman is lucky to be alive after her car plummeted seven stories from a multi-storey car park.

Footage shows an SUV on the ground floor waiting to park, when suddenly a black BMW 4 series can be seen falling to the ground.


The car hits the floor nose first before the momentum forces the car upwards and it flips over.

Various bystanders run to the woman's aid, with one person opening the driver's door and communicating with the driver.

The incident happened in Austin, Texas, after the car fell over the edge of the car park. This is the second time a car has fallen from Littlefield Parking Garage in a year.

The female driver suffered serious injuries, although they are not thought to be life threatening according to local police.
