A man was stuck on a cliff in Marin County the evening of Easter. It could have ended in a tragedy, but thanks to the work of Sonoma Sheriffs helicopter unit, a young man from Louisiana walked away with no serious injuries.

In sensational video recorded by deputy Larry Matelli, the tense and dramatic rescue happened off the cliffs in the Golden Gate National Recreational Area. Officials say Cody Cretini was dangling off a rock after he climbed up from the beach."I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t a little nervous," said Matelli.The ‘Henry One’ helicopter unit made its way over from Santa Rosa to assist Southern Marin County firefighters.

Matelli put the young man’s arms through a strap one by one, while the waves crashed against the shore and the helicopter’s rotor wash swung him around."You’re talking about inches, on the end of a 100-foot line," said Cooper. "You have the ocean ebbing in and out.""The priority is to get him out of that situation, because if we don’t get him moved, even if he is injured, if we don’t move him, there’s likelihood that he could die there," Matelli added.
