A Colorado woman found an unusual way to signal for help after she got stranded in the Bavarian Alps. Twenty-four year-old Jessica Bruinsma attached her sports bra to a cable used to move timber down the mountain. Some lumberjacks noticed it and went for help.

Bruinsma was found badly injured on a rocky overhang, where got stuck after falling about 16 feet. Her family is grateful Jessica survived.

"It was the man who saw this bra on this little thing and he alerted police right away and they found her two hours later," said Elana Bruinsma, the victim's sister.

Jessica is scheduled to return to Colorado next week.
