A lucky California dog was rescued by first responders after being pursued by raccoons and falling off a cliff over Memorial Day weekend.

The San Francisco Fire Department (SFFD) reported that the incident took place in the city’s Potrero Hill neighborhood in Central San Francisco on Sunday night.

According to FOX 2 San Francisco, the dog – whose name is Cushy-Pup – was rescued at around 10:30 p.m. More than a dozen fire department officials were at the scene to facilitate the rescue.

“It was reported that raccoons chased Cushy-Pup and fell off a cliff,” the SFFD told Fox News Digital.
