Driver Rescued After Going 150 Feet Down Steep Cliff in Pacifica

The driver of a vehicle that plunged more than 150 feet down a cliff early Sunday morning in Pacifica was hospitalized after being brought back up from heavy brush by crews using ropes and a rescue basket.

Three fire companies and a technical rescue unit from the North County Fire Authority responded at 2:20 a.m. to the scene at Manor and Heathcliff drives, where the vehicle had gone down a steep ravine.

A rope system was used by firefighter/paramedics to reach the driver, who was assessed and treated for injuries before being brought up via a rescue basket and taken to the hospital.

The operation took about an hour.
