HANDOUT IS FROM CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL A dramatic rescue captured on video. Two teens -- you can see one of them here -- clinging to the side of a beach cliff. They're about two miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. The video was taken last Friday by California Highway Patrol and just now released. Police say the two boys -- 17 and 18 -- were stuck on that cliff about 75 feet above the beach. They were in beach clothes and weren't wearing any shoes. There's no road nearby, making a rope rescue difficult. So a chopper had to be called in. A harness is lowered and plucks each boy safely off the cliff. They were dropped off on the beach, reunited with family - shaken, but unhurt.
