A driver in Austin, Texas escaped unharmed Friday from his car after he tried to park it and it ended up dangling over the side of a parking garage.

The vehicle was on the ninth floor of a parking garage when the man tried to park it around 2:30 p.m. He said he tried stopping his car, but it kept moving slowly and caught on the wire barricade.

As the car continued moving, it ended up flipping over the side of the garage, with only the wire holding the car by one of its wheel wells.

The driver said wearing his seat belt saved his life. He was then able to climb out of the car and someone helped pull him onto the eighth floor of the garage without any injuries.

Authorities said the car remained dangling by the single wire, and they tried to figure out how to lift the car back from the side and into the garage.
