Newly-released video shows the moment a auto plummeted from the seventh floor of a parking garage and landed upside down.

Police have released security camera footage of a BMW that fell seven stories off of a parking garage in downtown Austin, Tex., in July.

According to police, the female driver hit the wrong pedal on the top story of the auto park before driving through a barrier and plunging into an alleyway.

Police said the woman survived, but suffered serious injuries during the crash, which happened on July 13.

Bizarrely, this is the second time in less than a year that a vehicle has fallen off the edge of the same parking garage.

The owner of the Littlefield Garage, located at 508 Brazos St., said these were the only two incidents of this kind they've experienced.

Austin Code reports the property owner has been in contact with several engineering firms to perform the repairs and upgrades, with several proposals received last week. "My foot slipped off the brake", she said.

But besides calling on the city and parking garages to work to prevent incidents like hers from occurring, Bowmer said she was thankful to all the passers-by, paramedics, police and other medical professionals who helped her get through the traumatic aftermath.

Bowmer is back to walking, but she can not stand for long periods of time - leaving her husband Joe to pick up duties around the house in Cedar Park, an Austin suburb.

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

Bowmer says she thought she was going to die.
