Dog Rescued From Seaside Cliff in Sonoma County

Dog Rescued From Seaside Cliff in Sonoma County
Posted March 16th, 2014 @ 1:55pm by KFBK News

A rescue worker dangling from a helicopter plucked a stranded dog from a Northern California seaside cliff.  

The Sonoma County Sheriff's Department reported Sunday that a black Labrador named Oreo somehow made its way half-way down a 90-foot cliff along the county's Pacific coast and couldn't get back up.

With the surf pounding below, a descent was not an option. So the department's helicopter dubbed "Henry-1" was called in. A large crowd of beachgoers who gathered to watch the rescue on the unseasonably warm and sunny Saturday afternoon broke into applause as Oreo was reunited with his owner.

Henry-1 has rescued several dogs over the years.
