    Emergency crews rescued a 18-year-old man who fell down a San Francisco cliff early Monday morning, according to fire officials.

    Around 12:34 a.m., firefighters received a report of a person who had possibly fallen down a cliff at Lands End, located at 680 Point Lobos Avenue, a fire dispatcher said.

    When firefighters arrived, they learned the victim had reached the bottom of a cliff near Eagle Point Labyrinth, according to the dispatcher.

    At 2:17 a.m., a rescue boat was able to locate the victim at the bottom of the cliff and take him to safety, the dispatcher said.

    The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries not considered life threatening, according to the dispatcher.

    Monday’s rescue comes less than two weeks after two teenage siblings had to be rescued when an effort to retrieve a dropped phone left them stuck on a cliff at Lands End.
