A man was rescued after falling off a cliff west of Santa Barbara Tuesday afternoon.

The Santa Barbara County Fire Department responded to reports of the fall at Tajiguas Beach, north of Refugio State Beach, shortly after 1:25 p.m.

Fire officials say the man, who was approximately 37-years-old, had fallen 20-25 feet over the cliff and had what were described as “lower extremity injuries.”

He was treated on scene by firefighter paramedics before being hoisted into a helicopter and taken to a nearby hospital.

An update on his condition was not immediately available.
