BRENTWOOD—Los Angeles Fire Department Air-Ops hoisted a 26 year-old male hiker to safety on Tuesday, November 10, after the injured party fell a distance of more than 30 feet, according to LAFD spokesman Margaret Stewart.

At 10:11 a.m., a 911 call prompted LAFD air divisions to respond to the 1686 N. Capri Dr. area of Brentwood near Rustic Creek Trail. 

On scene, LAFD units found the hiker in serious condition sustaining traumatic injuries, Stewart said.

At 10:35 a.m., Air Ops rapidly prepared a hoist operation to transport the hiker to a near by trauma center.

Further details and subsequent developments of the incident have yet to be released.
