The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department released video showing a daring helicopter rescue off a cliff in Eaton Canyon.

Deputies said a young woman and two men were trapped near a waterfall about 100 feet above the canyon floor on Sept. 11.

A sheriff's rescue helicopter hovered above the hikers as paramedic deputies were lowered down.

The three were lifted from the cliff and taken to a safe place where they were able to walk away unharmed.
