Man dies after falling at Sunset Cliffs

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 27-year-old man fell to his death from a four-story-tall sea bluff while visiting Sunset Cliffs with friends early Tuesday.

One of the victim's companions made a 911 call shortly before 4 a.m. to report the accident near the terminus of Ladera Street, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

Emergency personnel found the man at the foot of a roughly 40-foot bluff, SDFRD spokesman Lee Swanson said. The victim, whose name was withheld pending family notification, died at the scene.

Crews put his body on a litter and used a rope-and-pulley system to bring it up to street level.

The victim's friends told authorities he was walking along the edge of the precipice when he lost his footing, Swanson said.
