Perilous perch: SUV plows through parking garage wall | Photos

It began with heart-pounding drama and ended the way it was supposed to.

On a rain-soaked afternoon, an SUV busted through the top wall of a two-story parking garage in Miami Springs and dangled outside as the driver likely put a death grip on the steering wheel and wondered if she would survive.

It happened shortly before 4:30 p.m. Thursday near South Royal Poinciana Boulevard and Oakwood Drive.

As gasping onlookers watched, 11 units from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue got to the scene.
