SANTA CRUZ (AP) — Authorities say a state park official and a bystander pulled a man from the ocean after he fell about 30 feet (9 meters) from a cliff in Santa Cruz.

KSBW-TV reports Santa Cruz Fire Department rescuers were called to the rugged coastline near Natural Bridges State Park on Friday evening, finding bystanders treating the man.

The department says the man suffered major injuries. Authorities didn’t identify him.

Fire department crews and other agencies used an aerial ladder and ropes to hoist the man up the cliff.
