Like that one? Better headline than man rescued from rocks. And don’t try to get there in your all wheel drive Subaru, either.
The rescue took about 45 minutes at about 5 p.m., according to Pacific Grove Police. Sgt. Jeff Fenton was patrolling the beach front when he was flagged down about an injured person on the rocks off the shoreline in the 1400 block of Ocean View Boulevard. “I got there and did a quick assessment about where he was located on the rocks,” said Fenton. “Then I requested (the fire department) and suggested they bring the ladder truck from one of their special rescues that we’ve done.”
Upon their arrival, police officers assisted Monterey Fire and American Medical Response by helping to hoist the 54-year-old man in and up from the rocks using ropes and pulleys. The man, who is from New York, was then transported to Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.
