Lifeguards used ropes to rescue two people off a cliff Sunday at Blacks Beach, a San Diego Fire-Rescue (SDFD) spokesman said.
Rescuers were called out around 2:30 p.m. to the cliffs, where the two men, who are in their mid-20s and visiting from Tennessee, had walked up a false trail and got stuck, Capt. Joe Amador said. Lifeguards were able to get the men down at 3:40 p.m., Amador said, adding neither man was injured.
San Diego Lifeguards (SDLG) have regularly discouraged hikers from climbing the cliffs along San Diego’s beaches. Last October an SDLG representative said, “Stay on trails and do not climb on cliffs,” in a statement on social media.
