UPDATE 5:15 p.m.: The car has been lowered to the ground.
EARLIER: Just before 3 p.m. word came from the Austin Fire Department's Twitter account: a car was dangling off the roof of a parking garage at Congress and 6th Street in downtown Austin.
Here's a video from the scene as the car dangled:
The person was in the car when it went over the edge and became entangled in a safety cable, but he made it out safely.
It didn't take long for the news to take off on the internet.
