Man rescued from San Francisco cliff

- A man, dangling off a San Francisco cliff above the ocean was rescued by firefighters.

The man was stranded 100 feet down the cliff, about 25 feet above the crashing ocean waves.

This happened in the sea cliff neighborhood, around 2 a.m. Friday.

A neighbor heard the man calling for help, and then called firefighters.

They had to rig up a pulley system, and eventually, were able to haul him up the cliff to safety.

Officials say the man had minor injuries, and is expected to be OK.

It's not clear how he became stuck in the first place.

Crews at the scene believe he may have walked from China Beach or Baker Beach and became stuck when the tide came in.

Additional details have not been released.
