Injured hiker rescued near Dante's View

*Injured Hiker* Griffith Park near Dante's Peak; MAP 593-J2; FS 35; PRELIM: Adult male hiker fell on remote trail; LAFD air/ground response; NFD (No Further Details) Ch:7,12 @ 7:42 AM -Brian Humphrey ###

Tue, Apr 19, 2011, 08:08 UPDATE: Griffith Park/Dante's Peak* LAFD copter found patient, lowered medics to ground; Ground transport anticipated - Brian Humphrey###

Good thing LAFD has a helicopter, because Park Rangers don't go on duty in Griffith Park until 10am anymore.

Note to LAFD: There is no "Dante's Peak" in Griffith Park. Only in Hollywoodland where Pierce Brosnan engaged a Mt. St. Helens lookalike in a silly movie.  Dantes' View is on Mt. Hollywood in Griffith Park, but the Hollywood Sign is not. The Hollywood Sign is on Mt. Lee.  Everyone got that?
