Emergency crews responding to a cliff rescue Monday afternoon near Santa Barbara found a mannequin hanging from a beachside cliff.

According to Santa Barbara County Fire officials, people on the beach noticed what they believed to be someone in distress about 30 feet down a cliff at Hope Ranch Beach.
