A hiker was en route to a hospital Monday night after falling 100 feet in Bells Canyon.
The 23-year-old man was conscious and talking to rescuers who brought him down from the lower Bells Canyon Falls, said Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal. A helicopter took him to a hospital about 8:30 p.m.
The man fell about 3:45 p.m., suffering arm, leg and head injuries. He was expected to survive.
“That’s very fortunate for this young man,” Hoyal said.
