Visitors to Hope Ranch Beach in Santa Barbara called emergency services to report a woman hanging by her fingertips on a cliff, seemingly unable to move. She was 30 feet down the rock wall and not wearing appropriate rock climbing equipment. Multiple rescue agencies responded with fire engines, utility terrain vehicles, and a drone. Shortly after arriving, they determined that no lives were in jeopardy.
"Ended up being a mannequin from movie shoot days earlier," tweeted Daniel Bertucelli of the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.
"Better to call than not," he wrote.
