A dog, out for a walk yesterday with its owner, is lucky to be alive today. The 18-pound animal bolted into the bushes after a squirrel and slid off the precipice of a giant cliff in Santa Monica.

Luckily it became wedged in a crevice half way down and firefighters were able to perform a rescue by ladder truck.

The scene was caught on camera from the NBC news helicopter.
