An 82-year-old woman is lucky to be alive after hitting a guard rail, falling 15 feet and sitting in her car for over two hours.

The woman’s daughter says her mom called around 10 a.m. and said she was going to visit to pick up Halloween candy from her daughter’s house. Around 12:30 p.m., the daughter said she still had not seen her mother. The daughter called her sister, who drove the route between her mom and sister’s house.

The sister ending up finding the car along SW Auburn Road, past 110th St., in Osage County.

The daughter saw tracks heading off the road and into a pond. She says her mom was going northbound on Auburn Rd. when she hit a guardrail and fell 15 feet into the water. She was in her car for about 2 and a half hours until two men stopped and helped her out.

The mom says she stayed in her car because she knew her daughters would come find her.

The daughters say their mom is doing okay. She was taken to the hospital with shoulder and stomach pain.

Authorities have not released the woman’s name at this time.
