Woman's body found beneath LA coastal cliffs

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles fire officials say they have found the body of a woman believed to have fallen off a cliff toward the ocean.

Scott says the hard-to-reach body had to be hoisted out with a fire department helicopter, which landed nearby.

Scott unidentified woman, who appears about 45 years old, was then turned over to police and coroner's officials for investigation.
