Man whose car stopped at ledge rescued after fall down hill


THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — A helicopter crew rescued a man who tumbled down a steep California hillside after his car ended up teetering on the ledge. After stopping his car just short of the slope, authorities say the man got out, lost his balance and fell about 200 feet into Bell Canyon. Multiple agencies assisted with the rescue in the area on the border of Ventura and Los Angeles counties. Officials say the man didn’t appear to have life-threatening injuries. He was taken to a hospital to be checked out. Authorities didn’t immediately say how the motorist ended up off the road at the edge of the canyon.
