A German Shepherd named Dory was successfully rescued after falling off a cliff in Ecola State Park in Oregon Wednesday evening, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

An assist request was made to USCG Sector Columbia River at around 7 p.m. PT when Dory tumbled over the 300-foot cliff. A rescue crew was shortly dispatched.

Bodycam footage shows Coast Guard Air Station Astoria safely airlifted the injured dog from a secluded section of the beach "only accessible by repelling down from a hiking trail," the crew said via a Twitter thread.

Dory was reunited with her owner after the rescue and rushed to the vet. She is reportedly in stable condition.
