Los Angeles firefighters rescued a man and his dog who survived after tumbling 150 feet down a steep cliff in Lake View Terrace this afternoon.

The 19-year-old man had been hiking with his father who tossed a bottle off the trail in the Valley, according to ABC 7. The dog went after the bottle and the man went after the dog and both of them tumbled down the cliffside. They were stranded from noon until 90 minutes later when firefighters rescued the pair. Firefighters rappelled down the cliff and lowered the man and dog to safety.

The boy and the dog were in good shape, just a little dehydrated.
