See also

According to KTVU News, firefighters in Marin County, Calif., rescued a dog who tumbled over a cliff on Sunday afternoon.

Though the dog, a seven-month-old pit bull named "Mia," was 200 feet over the side of the cliff near Rodeo Beach, and wedged between some rocks below, she survived and miraculously, appeared to be uninjured.

A crew of firefighters from the Southern Marin Fire District obtained the assistance of a California Highway Patrol helicopter to locate the dog and then a team rappelled down the cliff's face to reach the dog below.

Mia was muzzled and placed into a litter to be hoisted back up to safety.

Thanks to the efforts of the firefighters, Mia was able to be reunited with her anxiety-ridden guardian who had watched the rescue unfold.
