A helicopter helped rescue a 12-year-old boy who became stranded on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean in San Francisco, California firefighters reported.

The rescue took place around 4:50 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10, officials told KTVU.

A 12-year-old boy climbed down the bluff at Fort Funston, a former military installation, and couldn’t climb back up, KNTV reported.

A California Highway Patrol helicopter carried a firefighter to the boy and then hoisted him aboard, the San Francisco Fire Department said on X, formerly Twitter.

A video with the post shows a firefighter holding onto the boy as the helicopter lifts them from the bluff.

The boy was uninjured, KGO reported.

Fort Funston on the southwestern edge of San Francisco is now part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The bluffs overlooking the beach are 200 feet high.

Don Sweeney has been a newspaper reporter and editor in California for more than 25 years. He has been a real-time reporter based at The Sacramento Bee since 2016.
