Floor where a BMW driver drove off in downtown Austin on July 13, 2017.

Austin police released video of a auto falling seven stories from a parking garage on July 13. Bowmer later told an officer she believed she must have mistakenly hit the accelerator instead of the brake and broke through the cables, the report said.

The vehicle had suffered damage before slamming into the ground after hitting a building across the alley on its way down.

A motorist in the USA is surprised to still be alive after a auto falling from a parking garage just missed the vehicle he was in.

The deeply scary incident happened a couple of weeks ago in Austin, Texas, but only now has the footage been released.

A similar incident occurred at the same garage in September 2016.

Burch can be seen driving away from the horrific scene as bystanders and workers from a nearby construction site rush to see to the woman, trapped in the sedan.

Bowmer says the wires that serve as walls in the parking garage made her "freak out". One of the barrier wires caught his SUV as it was falling and left his vehicle hanging precariously on the side of the garage.

A request for comment from parking garage owner GTT Parking LP was not returned because the owner was out of the country and unreachable by phone, the company's spokesman Jason Meeker said.

"You know that you're about to die", O'Connor said.

According to Fox 7, city code enforcement is working with the building's owners and engineers to bring the garage's cable system into compliance.

A man drove through the barrier cables which wrapped around his tires, suspending his vehicle from the ninth floor.

The seventh floor, where the July incident happened, is now fenced off with caution tape.
