Ignatius High School Student Killed In Fall From San Francisco Cliff”

Victoria La Rocca, 17, of Corte Madera fell to her death Thursday evening in San Francisco's Lands End, officials said.

A teen girl who died after falling from a cliff in San Francisco Thursday has been identified as Victoria La Rocca.

She had lost her footing and fell from a steep cliff about 6:30 p.m. near the Lands End Labyrinth, according to the fire department.

Rescue crews were hampered by "strong and treacherous search conditions", said SFFD spokesman Jonathan Baxter.

"They were probably walking along a path or something...and we're not sure if she slipped", Fire Battalion Chief Denise Newman told the Ex.

Rescue crews were able to eventually secure her to a flotation device, KRON 4 reports, and managed to get her to China Beach.

She was still breathing when emergency responders reached her, but she died in an ambulance on the way to a hospital.

La Rocca was out on the cliffs with two other people when she fell off the cliff.

Swimmers with the fire department and the National Parks Service's Ocean Rescue team were able to reach the teenager about 20 minutes after she fell.
