(KSL) A group of four friends "feel like family" after a frightening accident and rescue on the edge of a 40-foot cliff.

Watching his helmet camera's recording, John Dumm still has a tough time believing how fast it all happened.

"When you watch the video, it's like, 'Oh, that's a very scary situation'," Dumm said.

In October, Dumm and three friends from Sevier County were riding their four-wheelers west of Cedar City on a mountain ridge. He said they were enjoying the beautiful weather when he noticed one of his friends fall off her four-wheeler and tumble towards a 40-foot cliff.

"There wasn't any time to waste," Dumm said.

Dumm ran to where his friend, Angelica McCall, was clinging to the mountainside. Her husband, Chiron, was holding her four-wheeler on a steep slope to prevent it from falling on her.

Anglica was at the edge of the cliff holding onto a small branch.

"And I can hear her. I can hear her saying 'I'm falling, I'm falling'," Dumm said. "There was no time to mess around, so I started down. There was no plan," Dumm said.
