Yesterday July 10, police and rescue personnel responded to a report of a male diver who had fallen approximately 50 ft. over the cliffside into the water.

One of the personnel contacted the diver’s friend who provided local information to assist. The chopper was able to locate and extricate the patient to a waiting medical crew. The patient was treated and transported to HMC ER in critical condition.
