SAN DIEGO - Lifeguards and other emergency responders performed a cliff-side rescue on the bluffs above Black's Beach near the Torrey Pines Glider Port early Monday.

A 21-year old woman was exploring the edge of the cliff with two of her friends around 3:45  a.m. when she fell nearly 80 feet, officials said.

The darkness and steep terrain made it difficult for emergency responders to rescue the woman.

She was transported with minor injuries to a nearby hospital.
