LOS ANGELES (AP) - A 10-year-old girl was badly injured when she apparently fell off a Southern California cliff.
Los Angeles fire officials say the girl was with her family on Saturday when she fell about 15 to 20 feet down the cliff at Point Fermin Park in San Pedro. Rescuers were able to reach the girl and she was taken to a hospital where she's listed in critical condition with head injuries.
It wasn't known why or how the girl fell.
The Point Fermin cliffs, in Los Angeles' San Pedro neighborhood, have a history of fatal falls including the2007 death of University of Southern California kicker Mario Danelo.
