Teenager Rescued from Douglas Preserve Cliff
Update by edhat staff
A teenage girl was rescued from the side of a cliff on the Douglas Preserve Thursday evening.
Santa Barbara City firefighters and Search & Rescue teams responded to the scene around 6:30 p.m. The teen was reportedly clinging to the side of the cliff in a remote area, approximately 150 feet down. She was reportedly stuck down slope from the trails.
Crews used a rope system where a rescuer was lowered down to reach the teen. She was placed in a victim harness and raised back up to safety. She was transported to the hospital with some minor injuries.
First call-out was for a fall victim, then a cliff rescue. This is near the Douglas Family Preserve, at Medcliff Road and Selrose Lane.
