One dead and two critically injured falling from California cliff

A man was found dead and two women sustained serious injuries after four people fell off a cliff in southern California during the small hours of Monday.

The person who died has been identified as a 25-year-old man from Los Angeles. The two women were airlifted from the beach and rushed to the hospital in a critical condition, officials said.

The fourth person managed to climb back up after sustaining minor injuries and alerted a passing officer at about 4.30am local time, said Steve Barber from the Palos Verdes Estates police department.

Vincent Avila of Los Angeles was hospitalised with broken ribs and minor kidney damage.

According to Mr Avila’s mother, the group of four friends went to the cliffs on Sunday night to spend some time. When one of the women went to relieve herself, she slipped and fell and the others also slipped while searching for her from the edge, she told KNBC-TV.

Palos Verdes Estates is located on the Palos Verdes Peninsula at the southern end of Los Angeles County.

“There’s no indication at this point that this was anything other than an accident,” Mr Barber said.
