Man Plunges To Death From San Pedro Cliff
A young man at Point Fermin Park in San Pedro died after plunging off a cliff Thursday evening.
The Los Angeles Fire Department received a call about a young man who had fallen from a cliff and into the surf below at 8:05 p.m. in the 800 block of West Paseo del Mar. They conducted a search by sea and by air, according to City News Service. They rescued him, put him in a fire department boat and aggressively tried to revive him but it was too late: "The patient was sadly beyond medical help and was determined dead."
The man was with a group of people who immediately dialed 9-1-1, according to the Los Angeles Times. The name and age of the man have not been released, pending the notification of family.
