    Lee Swanson with the SDFD said the man had fallen between 20 and 25 feet down the rocky cliffs and had suffered some sort of head injury.

    The terrain where he came to rest was difficult to access, but rescuers managed to tend to the patient as best as possible on the cliffs before airlifting him out

    He was taken to a local hospital. His condition is unknown at this time.

    The man's name was not released.
