MILL VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — A dog walker who fell more than 200 feet down a ravine in the San Francisco Bay Area was rescued after crews were able to track her via her cellphone.
KTVU-TV reports 71-year-old Carol Anderson slipped and fell while walking on a remote fire road during Tuesday's rain storm in Mill Valley.
She managed to call a client, reporting that she was dizzy and had no idea where she was. Her only clue was she could see the San Francisco skyline.
Firefighters were able to narrow down her location and then officials were able to "ping" her phone. That got rescuers close enough so that they could hear Anderson's voice.
Officials say when rescuers found Anderson, she was curled up with all six dogs.
She was hospitalized in fair condition. The dogs have been returned to their owners.
