The Santa Barbara County Fire Department conducted a cliff rescue early Saturday morning.
According to a tweet from Scott Safechuck, Santa Barbara County Fire's Public Information Officer, a man was out hunting when he got stuck over the side of a cliff above the Upper Oso area in Los Padres National Forest.
Firefighters said the man was about 80 to 100 feet down and shot a gun for help. He was soon found by hunters who used a lowering cable and secured the man on a ledge.
The hunters then left to call firefighters for help.
Santa Barbara County firefighters arrived at the scene and were able to rescue the victim with rope systems at about 1:13 a.m.
First responders said they took the man to the hospital with a severe leg injury.
