A dog got stuck in a steep canyon in Beverley Glen (USA) Wednesday, prompting a dramatic and dangerous helicopter rescue.

L.A. firefighters were called to the 1900 block of north Bel Air Road in Beverly Glen after the dog’s owner reported the animal was hurt and stuck some 200 feet down an embankment.

The dog was placed in a harness and then in the arms of a firefighter. A helicopter lifted the two to safety, swinging and spinning along the way.

It’s still not clear how the dog got stuck in the ravine in the first place.
