Injured hiker airlifted to hospital after falling into canyon

Posted: Updated:

CITY HEIGHTS (CBS 8) - A hiker who suffered a head injury is airlifted out of a canyon in City Heights.    

Medics were called to a canyon near the 2600 block of Euclid Avenue around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday night, after a man fell into the canyon.

Because it was getting dark, they decided the best way to rescue the victim was to use a helicopter to hoist him out.

The man was flown to Scripps Mercy hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
