SAN DIMAS: Father’s Day Cliff Rescue

SAN DIMAS – (6/21/2020) The Los Angeles Fire Department received a call in the late afternoon on Father’s Day about a person jumping off a cliff into a river, and requiring emergency assistance. Once firefighters arrived, they located an adult male suffering from back and rib injuries from the fall. The LAFD requested a helicopter to hoist the victim out of the canyon and transport him to Pomona Valley Hospital with minor injuries. The wife of the husband stated that the “father and the sons were jumping into the water and the father went to jump and try to avoid landing on his son and turned a different way and that’s when he hurt himself.” The sons were unharmed and left the scene safely.
