Cape Town - A woman survived a 150m fall down a cliff in her car in Clifton, Cape Town, paramedics said on Sunday.

The woman, believed to be in her early 30s, lost control of the car at around 07:30 on Saturday, said ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks.

The car plummeted down the cliff and landed in a backyard, wedged between a wall and a house.

"When emergency personnel arrived on the scene, they found the driver had already climbed out [of] the car," said Banks.

"They assessed and treated [her] for suspected neck and back injuries and possible broken ribs." She was later taken to hospital.
