[UPDATE: Fatality]Rescue Underway at Sea Ranch Bluffs—Woman Down a 40′ Cliff

Scanner traffic starting around 7:45 p.m. indicates a high-angle rope rescue is being deployed after a woman was located approximately forty feet down a cliff near Sea Ranch in Sonoma County.

Units are already on scene setting up the rope rescue. The United States Coast Guard has been requested. Units from Mendocino County are also reportedly on the way.

A Coast Guard helicopter has been requested because the CHP helicopter initially dispatched will not be able to hoist after dark.

Shout out to the Sonoma County Scanner Updates Facebook page for their initial reporting.

UPDATE 8:51 p.m.: Despite rescue attempts, the woman has succumbed to injuries that resulted from the incident.

Please remember that this story is unfolding. Information is being reported as we gather it. However, some of the information coming from witnesses and initial official reports could be wrong. We will do our best to get the facts but, in the case that something is inaccurate, we will update with correct information as soon as we can.

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced by the urban elite. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs told.
