ENCINITAS, Calif. -- Two women had to be rescued by firefighters after becoming trapped on a cliff early Sunday morning.
It happened around 2:20 a.m. at Moonlight Beach. The women walked about 100 feet down the cliff and could not get back up.
"There was about a 30-foot drop to the beach, so they were stuck there," said Battalion Chief Terry Chiros with the City of Encinitas.
It took firefighters about 45 minutes to rescue the women. Neither were injured.
"All these cliffs have signs posted that they are unstable due to erosion," Chiros said. "Luckily no one was hurt."
