Oreo is a black and white labrador. She's friendly, but also kind of dense. She explored a rocky cliff on Portuguese Beach in Sonoma Coast State Park, California. Oreo made it about 40 feet down a 90 foot cliff and got stuck. She couldn't climb back up. And she couldn't climb down, either, because the waves were battering the cliff hard. If Oreo had tried to get down, she would have probably drowned.
Thankfully, some humans from the local police department were able to help. The helicopter crew from the Sonoma County Sheriff's Department flew in. Deputy Henri Boustany dangled from the end of a 100-foot line. Paul Bradley, the helicopter pilot, lowered him to Oreo's position. Boustany was able to pick up the dog without any problems.
