This short, powerful video by Santa Cruz Surf School owner Dylan Greiner caused an uproar among Santa Cruz residents and shows the power of social media.
If they won't listen to one person, they certainly will when thousands see it.
In the video, Greiner says he notified the city a month ago, but nothing got done. But when he put it on YouTube, here's what happened:
From SC Mayor Don Lane...
"Though the city "offices" are closed today, last night I shared the video with our Parks Director and she activated a crew to follow up. First thing this morning a team of parks workers including the Parks Superintendent cleaned the area and finished about 9:15 am - following up on the GREAT WORK DONE YESTERDAY BY VOLUNTEERS. City staff is now working on a plan for how to block off the cave area below the cliff.
"Thanks to Dylan and others who mobilized a quick response."
