In what appears to be an accident, a 24-year-old man died yesterday evening after he apparently climbed the fence near the cliffs of Point Fermin Park in San Pedro. The fence is there for a very good reason, but numerous people have fallen, often to their death, at the park over the years. Fire department rescues at this location almost seem routine.

"It's very unfortunate, so many people have gone off the side," a neighbor who happened to be in the park when it happened told the Daily Breeze. "I can't even imagine what it is like for the people who are affected."
