SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) -- Emergency responders had to rescue a surfer stranded on the coastal rocks near the Cliff House restaurant late Sunday afternoon.

The surfer was not injured, but got stuck on the rocks off Point Lobos Avenue, just north of Ocean Beach, shortly before 7 p.m. Sunday San Francisco firefighters said.

U.S. Coast Guard personnel and a crew aboard a California Highway Patrol helicopter lifted the surfer from the steep, rocky cliffside, and the surfer was safe atop the rocks by 7:20 p.m., the San Francisco Fire Department said.
