First responders rescued two young women from a cliff and an unconscious man from the water near Aquatic Park in San Francisco Thursday morning, according to the city's fire department.
The man in the water was rescued by a fire department boat and transported to the hospital in critical condition, according to the fire department. The two women on the cliff were said to be in stable condition.
Authorities received a call around 5:20 a.m. from a person who said they were stuck on a cliff and that one of their friends was injured, possibly in the water, Lt. Jonathan Baxter with the San Francisco Fire Department said.
Responding crews found the unconscious man floating in the water, according to Baxter. After retrieving him, first responders immediately started life-saving measures before transporting him to the hospital.
