On Friday morning an apparently drunk man trying to take in a beautiful vista from the Hollywood Hills scaled the wall of a pricey home and took a tumble, landing on a wrought iron fence. The fence impaled his thigh, and firefighters had to be called to the scene to try to cut him loose from the fence. Photographer and retired LAFD Captain Rick McClure sent us some slightly graphic photos from the scene, showing firefighters cutting him loose. The 25-year-old unidentified man was sent to the hospital with a piece of fence still inside his leg.
