Video shows Bay Bridge crash survivor Morgan Lake clinging to rocks awaiting help

ANNAPOLIS, Md. -

Dramatic video shows 22-year-old Morgan Lake as she clings to a pile of rocks shortly after a crash on the Bay Bridge sent her car into the water.

The video posted on YouTube by Scott Fortney was taken immediately after the accident.

In the video, Lake can be seen crawling out of the water and onto the a rock pile that surrounds a concrete bridge support.

Onlookers on the bridge call out to Lake, who identifies herself and tells them that she was driving alone.

Witness try to encourage Lake and tell her help is on the way.

Lake suffered cuts, bruises and a sprained ankle and wrist after her car was pushed over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Friday, July 19, by a tractor-trailer.

She told FOX 5 she is grateful to the boater who found her and says she learned something from the experience.

"Not to give up and not to take the easy way out, and to find your inner superwoman or superman and fight until you can't fight anymore,” she said.
