An injured man was airlifted from a Santa Barbara County beach on Wednesday, officials say.
At about 12:28 p.m. on Feb. 9, officials responded to the beach below More Mesa near Goleta. When they arrived, they found a middle-aged man with a large neck injury.
Firefighter paramedics with Santa Barbara County Fire Department treated the man on scene before he was airlifted by Ventura County Fire Department's Copter 8 to Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara.
Officials corrected early reports which falsely indicated that the man had fallen from the cliff.
