A woman had a lucky escape when her car was left dangling precariously from the third floor of a car park.

She had taken her sleeping daughter into their flat before parking the vehicle in her spot.

But as she reversed into the gap her gearbox was said to have got stuck.

This caused her to smash through the brick wall behind her.

Images show how the white Mazda 6 was left with its rear wheels dangling over the void.

It looked like the car could tilt backward and plunge at any moment.

Luckily, the woman managed to exit the vehicle safely and didn’t suffer any injuries.

The authorities in Rionegro, Colombia, confirmed that the mishap only caused material damage.

The car was dented in the rear, while debris fell on the complex’s pool area and didn’t hit anyone.

Firefighters were dispatched to the scene.

One said: “With a winch, we pulled the car to a safe area of the car park and then we relocated it to the first floor of the building.”

Local media say the parking lot may have been built before 2010.

That year, a law was passed requiring the walls of multi-storey car parks to be specially reinforced to absorb impacts.
