A woman and her dog are safe today, thanks to San Francisco rescue crews that spared them both from a possibly fatal fall Monday.
In a tweet posted Monday evening, the San Francisco Fire Department announced that a rescue was in progress at Fort Funston as of 6:09 p.m., as an "adult female and dog [were] down [a] cliff."
By 6:15, a "low angle rescue operation" was in progress, as the woman and canine were around 200 feet down the cliffside.
At 6:21, the SFFD says, the woman and dog were both safely returned to flat land. Neither the dog nor his companion were injured in the fall or subsequent rescue, according to the SFFD.
