Man Found Dangling from Isla Vista Cliffs

On 1/11 at around 2 p.m., a 34-year-old man from La Quinta with a rope tied around his calf was found dangling upside-down from a cliff in the 6500 block of Del Playa Drive. He told rescuers he had been hanging there for more than 12 hours, since 1:30 a.m. As he was carried to an awaiting ambulance, he told responders he had no feeling in his leg. “It’s unclear as to whether he was rappelling up or down the cliff or as to how this happened,” said Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover. No other details were released.
