Stranded hiker rescued today
At approximately 4pm this afternoon, Park Rangers responded to a call about a stranded person on a cliff face just north of Dante's View in Griffith Park.
Park Rangers located the idiot victim where they had no earthly business being on a cliff face 50' below the garden and escorted the LAFD to the scene where the Park Rangers and the LAFD then engaged in a joint rescue operation, air lifting the Darwin awards candidate person to safety.
Thankfully there were no injuries to either the person or the rescuers, but Common Sense sure took a beating.
