(KRON)—A man, a woman and a dog were rescued by a helicopter crew Saturday afternoon from the side of a cliff at Rodeo Beach, according to California Highway Patrol.

The dog tumbled 80 feet and his owners went down to the side of the cliff to try and save him, the CHP said.

His owners are in their 30s and live in San Francisco.

The two couldn’t go down the cliff further because of steep terrain and the difficulty of getting the dog, the CHP said.

The Southern Marin Fire Department asked for help from the CHP helicopter to rescue the crew just before 2 p.m.

Three people came to the area in the helicopter about 15 minutes later.

A firefighter came down the cliff to rescue the dog and his owners.

The dog had some scrapes and bumps, but the owners were not injured, according to CHP.
