(Newser) – "Hang in there" became a message for both rescuer and rescuee in this video: Oreo, a black-and-white Labrador, got stuck on a two-foot ledge, 40 feet down a 90-foot cliff in Northern California—she couldn't move at all without falling. Oreo's owner called 911 for help Saturday afternoon, and a sheriff's deputy ended up hanging from a helicopter to rescue the dog.
