Santa Cruz Fisherman Rescue 12-10-13 21:00 av
A stranded fisherman was brought to safety after falling into the ocean off West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz yesterday. The man, who was in his sixties, was fishing off rocks near Coumbia Street, when he slipped and fell into the water. The man was able to climb back onto the rock about 30-feet from shore with head injuries, before someone on the road spotted him about an hour later and called 9-1-1. Santa Cruz Fire rescue swimmers arrived, helped the man aboard a personal watercraft, before he was transported by ambulance to a nearby trauma center.
