SAN DIEGO (CNS) – First responders Monday rescued a man who fell on a trail near the Bankers Hill neighborhood, a San Diego Fire-Rescue Department spokesman said.

At around 7:30 a.m., rescuers were dispatched to Fourth Avenue and Quince Street, where they found the injured man under the Quince Street Bridge, Jose Ysea said.

Built in 1905, the historic Quinn Street Bridge spans Maple Canyon.

Details on the man’s injuries or what lead to his falling on the trail were unavailable.

Ysea said the SDFD extracted the victim from under the bridge and took him to a nearby hospital for treatment.
