After being stranded cliffside overnight, a hiker and the family dog, a German shepherd, were rescued by Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Air Rescue 5 and LASD Montrose Search and Rescue.
Late Tuesday night, the owner was hiking in the Delta Flats area in Big Tujunga Canyon with two dogs when one of them, Onyx, suddenly fell down a 200-foot cliff and got caught halfway.
Onyx spent the night on the ledge while family stayed close by, trying to keep him calm.
