    Two men were rescued by lifeguards and the Encinitas Fire Department after falling from the cliffs around Moonlight Beach, Monday.

    At 2:30 a.m. the two men were rescued after climbing over the railing at West H Street and 4th Street and falling down the cliff.

    One man fell 75 feet down the cliff and was rescued by Encinitas Fire Department after they used an aerial ladder from the fire truck to light up the cliff, said a fire chief.

    The other man fell about 150 feet down onto the beach and was unconscious with a head trauma when emergency personnel reached him.

    He later regained consciousness as he was being taken to the trauma center, according to the fire chief.

    One of the men admitted he and his friend had been consuming alcohol prior to the incident.
