ALPINE (CNS) - A woman who became lost on a dirt road in the Alpine area was pulled out of a 12-foot deep hole Monday night, "thirsty and scared" but otherwise uninjured, police said.
Sheriff's deputies received a call from a woman's cellphone at 8:34 p.m. and found her Ford Expedition parked at the end of Anderson Road, which then turns into West Boundary.
She walked about a mile when she lost her cellphone, said Lt. Dave Brown of the San Diego Sheriff's Department.
The phone fell down the hole -- the nature of the hole was not immediately clear -- and she tried to retrieve it. That's when she became stuck.
Deputies were able to determine her location from the cellphone, Brown said.
The woman was able to tell deputies that her two dogs and two water bottles were at the entrance to the hole.
First the car was spotted, and then the dogs and water bottles.
Firefighters arrived and with the aid of a ladder, she was rescued about 9:15 p.m.
