Video shows British Coast Guard rescuing teens


New video shows the British Coast Guard rescuing three teenagers who were trying to scale a 200-foot cliff in southern England.

The teenagers weren't wearing proper shoes or climbing equipment, officials said.

Video footage showed one of the barefoot hikers slipping off the cliff and being caught by a rescuer positioned below.

A ground rescue was deemed too risky because of the location of the incident, officials said.

All three teenagers were airlifted to safety by a helicopter.
