CHULA VISTA (CBS 8) - A man is hospitalized with serious injuries after falling off his ATV Sunday.

The rider went off the trail, dropping about 30 feet down tough terrain, in a remote open space area near the Donovan Correctional Facility in Chula Vista.

Rescue crews were unable to reach the victim, so they called in Mercy Air to help. The victim was then transported to the UCSD Medical Center, where he is expected to make a full recovery.

CBS News 8's Dominic Garcia has additional details from the UCSD Medical Center in the above video report.
