A 67-year-old man died Monday after he fell down a cliff while trying to rescue his dog in San Mateo County, officials said.
Emergency crews recovered the man's body at Thornton State Beach in Daly City.
At about 11:30 a.m., a California Highway Patrol air unit was called to assist the North County Fire Protection District for a cliff rescue. CHP Officer Shaun Bouyea said a male fell approximately 200 feet down a cliff next to the beach.
No other information was immediately available.
