A sea cave in Sunset Cliffs provided refuge for three struggling swimmers on Sunday October 12th. The three people were part of a larger group of cliff jumpers at a popular local spot known as The Arch.
The waves and backwash prevented the trio from using the usual route back up the cliff. Fortunately they found safe haven in a nearby sea cave, and then waited for the lifeguards to finish the rescue.
And they were rescued, although one had been injured. They felt trapped around 2:15 pm and got into the sea cave. Using ropes in their rescue rig lifeguards lifted the two up over onto the street side of the cliffs and had to use a stretcher for the third one. After being evaluated by paramedics, all three were let go, after being questioned by police.
