Shortly after 6 pm, CHP H-30 responded with the San Francisco Fire Department to a report of an elderly male who fell approx 30 yards from a cliffs edge near Lands End.
As firefighters searched by ground, H-30 began searching from above. After a brief search, H-30 located the male in a grove of trees and in a difficult to access location.
H-30 lowered a San Francisco Fire Helicopter Rescue Technician (HRT) to the scene and hoisted the male from the steep terrain. H-30 flew the victim and the SFFD HRT member to Cliff Rescue 14s location, where they were lowered to safety.
The male victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the fall.
