Firefighters called in to rescue a woman dangling from a cliff above a California beach were in for a surprise when they turned up.
Locals who were at the beach alerted authorities about a woman clinging from the rocks. When the emergency team and firefighters arrived at the scene, they realised the figure was actually a mannequin from a movie shoot.
Santa Barbara County Fire Department said that the witnesses at Hope Ranch Beach called 911 to report a woman who appeared to be stranded on the side of the cliff.
Firefighters with trucks, drones, and utility vehicles came to know quickly that it was a dummy hanging from the cliff and not a real person.
A public information officer tweeted along with the pictures of the mannequin, “At 3:49, SBC rec’d reports of a medical 30 feet down cliff above Hope Ranch Beach. Multi-agency response with UTV’s, Drone, Engines and Truck. Ended up being a mannequin from movie shoot days earlier. Passerby’s on the beach noticed and called. Better to call than not!”

The story has now garnered a flurry of reactions from netizens on Twitter.
Oh she's gonna fall… everyone looks down at her assumed point of impact.
But NO! She's miraculously grabbed ahold of a tree down below with amazing grip strength and is holding tight!!
She gets rescued by a crash test dummy. They kiss as the credits roll.
