An Oregon woman who survived after her Jeep plummeted off a cliff in Big Sur, stranding her for days, is still making music.

Angela Hernandez posted a video Wednesday of her playing the guitar. She says, "Wasn’t sure if i’d still be able to play after my accident, so this makes me so happy."

Her incredible story of survival captured the attention of many. Her latest video has been shared more than 9,000 times and includes comments from people who don’t even know her.

The 23-year-old says she doesn’t remember the crash earlier this month. 

When Hernandez woke up at the bottom of the cliff, she went into survival mode.

She was rescued seven days later after two Morro Bay residents found her while they were in the area looking for a place to surf and fish. 

Hernandez has said she feels joy because she’s alive.
