ENCINITAS (CBS 8) - Two men are safe this morning after being rescued from a cliff in Encinitas.
Crews had to rappel down from the top to reach the men who were stuck on a ledge Sunday.
Rescuers fought windy conditions and blowing sand to reach them while spectators watched from the beach below. One by one the men were roped up and hauled to safety.
They were both detained by sheriff's deputies, who say alcohol may have played a role in their poor decision-making.
