The San Francisco Fire Department was able to rescue three adults who got trapped on a cliff at San Francisco's Baker Beach Friday afternoon, officials said.

Michael Norton, a friend of the three hikers, told CBS San Francisco they were all visiting from Crockett, Texas, near Houston. And found themselves stuck on the steep cliff about 75 feet down from the top of the cliff face.
