The young man was with a group of teenagers who were hanging out at the edge of a cliff on Coast Drive. No one in the group actually saw him fall, according to San Diego Fire-Rescue Battalion Chief David Gerbroth.
“When the group turned around, they realized one of the members of the group, an 18-year-old male, was gone, and (they) looked over the cliff’s edge and their friend had fallen 75 to 90 feet down the side of the cliff,” Gerbroth said.
Rescuers used a helicopter to hoist the injured team up to the bluff. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment of major head injuries. There was not information on his condition Wednesday morning.
