    Rescue crews were called upon to rescue a dog and two humans from a beach cliff in Marin (Nov. 5, 2016).

    A trip to a North Bay beach turned into a bout of panic for a dog and its owner Saturday afternoon.

    The pooch reportedly became trapped on a cliff at Rodeo Beach in Marin County, prompting the owner and a good Samaritan to make a rescue attempt. That brave effort turned unsuccessful after the canine's owner and the helpful bystander both became stuck because of steep terrain.

    A rescue helicopter was dispatched to the scene and helped airlift everyone to safety.

    "I am just incredibly grateful and so glad that I got out of it and that everybody got out of it uninjured," Alea Stein, the dog's owner, said.

    The dog suffered minor injuries, but is doing just fine after a visit to a veterinarian, the owner says.
