A man was injured when he took a tumble down a bluff and landed on Pacific Coast Highway this morning in Santa Monica.

The unidentified victim, said to be in his late 30s, took a fall at approximately 11 a.m. Tuesday, and ended up in the 1200 block of Pacific Coast Highway, according to Santa Monica police Sgt. Richard Lewis, reports City News Serivce.

Authorities believe the man fell, and was not pushed.

Lewis says it is not uncommon for people to occasionally sleep in the bluff, though, in this case, says they are not sure what caused the man to fall down onto the highway.
