Mia, a 7-month-old puppy, was rescued by firefighters after falling from a 200-foot cliff in California.Firefighters came to the rescue of a 7-month-old Pit Bull who fell off a cliff in Marin County, Calif., onto Rodeo Beach on Sunday.
Rescuers used a helicopter and rope system to reach Mia as a crowd gathered to watch from the cliff. When they got to her, Mia was wedged between two rocks and not moving, and the firefighters feared the worst.
But as they got closer, the puppy moved her head and "let them know she was alive," said Southern Marin Fire Capt. Kai Pasquale. Mia was taken to a veterinarian. Amazingly, she wasn't seriously hurt and will return home soon. - Watch it at CBS News
