Heroics at sunset as rescue teams moved swiftly to save a teen male trapped on an unforgiving cliffside at Fort Funston. The California Highway Patrol's Golden Gate Division Air Operations (CHP H-30), alongside the San Francisco Fire Department and the National Parks Service, responded to the dire situation as the day began to twilight.

With precision, a cliff rescue specialist was lowered to secure safely and subsequently hoisted the teenager to the safety of the cliff's edge, where other rescue crews awaited. A post shared by CHP - Golden Gate Division Air Operations stated, "H-30 lowered a cliff rescue specialist from San Francisco Fire to the teenager and hoisted him to waiting rescue crews at the cliff's edge." This operation marks the third time since Friday that H-30 has had to act quickly to save lives in precarious situations.

These skilled aviators have not been strangers to danger. Over the same weekend, they showcased their indomitable spirit and unwavering commitment by carrying out the cliff rescues and assisting in two additional water rescues.

Additional details on the teenager's condition have not been disclosed, but the successful rescue operation has left yet another indelible mark on the unyielding fabric of the city's protective services.
