Sheriff Deputies received information about a male in his 50’s, who fell approximately 10-15 feet off a cliff and sustained injuries to his head and torso, which prevented him from climbing down the mountain on his own. Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue Team (SAR) was summoned to assist along with 1st Responders. Sheriff’s SAR team immediately took action and made their way up the mountainous terrain to render aid to the injured man. After being rescued by the SAR team, the male was air lifted to Del Sol Medical center for medical treatment. The rescue lasted nearly 2 hours.
