Just looking at photos of this parking job is giving us sweaty palms.

Firefighters responded to a report today of a car "hanging precariously" off the a fourth floor parking garage at St. Vincent Medical Center. They told the Los Angeles Times that the driver hit the gas instead of the brakes causing its front two tires to jump the curb and go through the railing.

Fortunately, this story has a happy ending: firefighters were able to pull the car back in with tools and the driver and passengers made it out unscathed.
