Torrey Pines, Calif. (KGTV) - Lifeguards and other emergency responders were sent out earlier this morning to the bluffs above Black's Beach near the Torrey Pines Glider Port for a cliff rescue. 

The un-identified 21 years-old woman was with two friends exploring the cliffs by the glider port when she fell around 4 a.m. Monday.

Initially, her friends attempted to help her but couldn't reach her so they called 911.
