Firefighters and lifeguards rushed to Blacks Beach Tuesday to rescue a man who had fallen off the cliffs.
The accident happened just before 3:30 p.m. at the cliffs in the 9600 block of La Jolla Farms Road. San Diego Lifeguards confirmed a helicopter had been requested to help hoist an injured man to safety from the cliffs.
It is unclear, at this point, how the man fell or what type of injuries he sustained.
He was transported to Scripps La Jolla via helicopter and by 4 p.m., officials were clearing the scene.
