Watch: Woman rescued from bluff below San Francisco cliff

SAN FRANCISCO -- Rescuers worked to save an injured woman trapped along a steep ocean trail below the Cliff House in San Francisco, authorities said.

CBS San Francisco reports that the woman was stuck on a rocky bluff on the north end of Ocean Beach in San Francisco with high waves crashing around her.

A man who first saw the woman yelled out to her and she said she had hurt her foot and was unable to move. He then called 911.

San Francisco firefighters arrived and used ropes and a long ladder to reach the woman. The woman was loaded onto a basket-type stretcher.

The condition of the woman was not immediately known.
