Two teenagers were rescued by Santa Barbara County Fire Department water units after being carried by the tide near Haskell's Beach on Sunday.
At 4:28 p.m., Santa Barbara County firefighters responded to a water rescue call near Haskell's beach. They discovered two 14-year-old females were stranded approximately one mile west on a cliff due to the rising tide.
Fire crews dispatched jetskis with rescue swimmers to make contact with the teens as they were brought back to shore.
The teens declined treatment at the scene with the consent of one of their mother's.
