Southern California firefighters said that one person was found dead and three people injured on a beach below an ocean cliff on Monday.
CBS Los Angeles reported that two people suffered traumatic injuries while the other one suffered a minor injury and was able to walk away.
According to Fire Dispatch Supervisor Martin Rangel, police called the Los Angeles County Fire Department before dawn to report a person possibly “over the side” of the cliff, and the firefighters later found the four people 300 feet down the cliff.
Authorities said there was no car involved in the fall, but it is still unclear how the four people fell, but LA County Fire officials said they all appeared to have been on foot.
Reports said that authorities have also described the area where the fall happened as very unstable, with very loose soil and no fencing in the area.
