A woman fell down a hillside while hiking near the iconic Hollywood sign in Los Angeles, fire officials said.
The injured woman, who was not immediately identified, fell early Sunday in the 3400 block of North Beachwood Drive — just southeast of the landmark sign and its 45-foot letters, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
The woman, who had potentially traumatic injuries, was rescued by helicopter after falling roughly 15 feet. The extent of her injuries was not immediately clear, fire officials said.
The incident was one of at least four emergency calls on Sunday involving hikers in Los Angeles, fire officials said.
About an hour earlier, a 30-year-old woman had to airlifted out of Runyon Canyon Park after becoming unable to walk, according to department officials. She was rushed to a hospital, where her injuries were unknown late Sunday.
In another rescue, firefighters had to use a two-line rope system to retrieve a man who fell 75 feet over the side of a hill in Brentwood. He also suffered unspecified traumatic injuries, department officials said.
A man also hurt his leg while hiking near Runyon Canyon in Hollywood Hills. The severity of his injuries was unclear, fire officials said.
Additional information on the rescues, as well as the condition of the injured hikers, was not immediately available early Monday.
