A homeless man was rescued Tuesday from a ravine in Griffith Park after he fell and suffered a head injury.
Firefighters sent to the central area of the park about 9 a.m. hoisted the man, in his 60s, into a helicopter and took him to a hospital, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Passerby Heard Calls For Help
The man told authorities he had walked down the hillside a couple of days ago, and then when he neared the bottom he fell and injured his head, leaving him unable to walk out on his own, fire officials said. A passerby heard him calling for help and notified authorities.
