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.

Point Fermin Park is known for its beautiful views, though the cliffs can be deadly for those who get too close or are attempting suicide. It's also not far from where Donny's ashes were scattered by The Dude and Walter in a scene in The Big Lebowski.
