Man falls to his death at Sunset Cliffs

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A pedestrian fell to his death Tuesday from a sea bluff above a Point Loma-area beach.

The accident near the intersection of Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and Ladera Street was reported about 2:45 p.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

Joe Garger was walking along Sunset Cliffs near Ladera when he spotted the man fall off the cliff and plunging an estimated 75 to 80 feet. 

Garger tried to help but running around to a lower-level reef to enter the water then swim into the cove.

Medics worked in vain to revive the victim, whose identity was not immediately available, before pronouncing him dead at the scene, SDFRD spokesman Lee Swanson said.
