SAN FRANCISCO - A Coast Guard helicopter rescue crew from Air Station San Francisco rescued three injured persons from a car that traveled off the side of a cliff near San Mateo, Calif., early Thursday morning.

At approximately 12:30 a.m., a vehicle carrying four passengers veered off the road and down a cliff near state Highway 92 in San Mateo. One of the passengers was able to climb the cliff and call for help.

Local first responders arrived on scene, but due to the location of the vehicle almost 150 feet off the cliff, requested Coast Guard assistance.

The Coast Guard rescue crew was launched. Once on scene, they began hoisting the passengers. Due to low fuel, the helicopter aircrew returned to the air station with one passenger, refueled and quickly returned for the remaining two people.

The remaining passengers were taken to Air Station San Francisco in stable condition and delivered to waiting EMS personnel.
