LA JOLLA (CNS) - A man who suffered a five-minute-long seizure and may have been carrying drugs was lifted by helicopter from Black's Beach in La Jolla today, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

Paramedics said the man was unconscious when they arrived just after 2:10 p.m., but that he became "combative" when they tried to put him in the helicopter.

The man was restrained and loaded onto the helicopter by 2:20 p.m. He was transported to a hospital.

Scanner reports said the man had a bottle of clear liquid that might contain drugs or alcohol with him.
