Dog who fell off 90-foot cliff rescued by helicopter Published: March 17, 2014

SONOMA COUNTY, Calif. — Sonoma County sheriff's deputies rescued a dog that became stranded after falling over a cliff along the Sonoma coast Saturday afternoon, reports KTVU.

The dog's owner called 911 at about 1:45 p.m. to report that her dog, a black Labrador retriever, had fallen over a cliff in the Portuguese Beach area, according to the sheriff's office.

Knowing from prior experiences that bystanders may often risk their own lives trying to save animals in distress, the sheriff's office launched its helicopter "Henry-1" to the scene.
