    Firefighters rescued a hiker who had fallen down a cliff at Linda Mar beach in Pacifica Saturday evening.
    The hiker fell around 15 feet down the side of a cliff at the south end of the beach shortly before 5:30 p.m., according to the North County Fire Authority.
    The rescue had to be conducted quickly once the hiker was located and assessed because the tide was high.
    Miraculously, the hiker suffered only minor injuries and was treated at the scene by paramedics and released, fire officials said.
