Man falls from Pismo cliff


A man in his mid-40s fell off a 40-foot cliff onto rocks in Pismo Beach on Monday afternoon, sustaining severe trauma to his right side, said Rick Howard, a captain with Cal Fire in Pismo Beach.

The man fell off a cliff at the end of Boeker Street around 4 p.m., Howard said.

The man, whose name was not immediately known, was taken to Arroyo Grande Community Hospital after rescuers hiked down the cliff and brought him up on a stretcher, Howard said.
