Sheriff and fire department crews in Malibu rescued two lifeguards from a beachside cliff this weekend after they became stuck while trying to reach a woman who had become stranded high on the rocks. Lifeguards in a boat spotted the woman 50 feet up the cliff at Pirate’s Cove and directed the two would-be rescuers to her position, where they, too, became stuck. By the time emergency crews arrived, a group of nearby climbers had already lowered the woman off the cliff. In a press release, officials said the incident was the second rescue at Pirate’s Cove this year.
