San Francisco firefighters came to the rescue of a dog that had tumbled down a cliff.

The dog was exploring the area off-leash with his owner when he took the fall.

The rescue crew dropped ropes over the cliff, then lowered down a firefighter, who harnessed the dog and lifted him to safety.

Had the dog not landed on a small ledge, he could have tumbled another 60 feet. 

The dog was not injured.
