SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Firefighters and the Coast Guard had to rescue three teens after they fell down a cliff at San Francisco’s China Beach.

If it weren’t for the quick-thinking actions of Don Betterley, this cliff-hanger could have ended in a recovery.

The young woman in the group had fallen down a cliff near a restaurant and had hurt her foot. Firefighters worked quickly but carefully in the rough terrain and wet weather. Several ropes had to be set up so she could be hoisted up to safety.

She was then airlifted to the hospital and is going to be okay!

Thankfully this man stopped to look at the view.
