A 24-year-old man was hospitalized Sunday after he hit his head on a reef while cliff diving off Sunset Cliffs.
The incident occurred at about 3:15 p.m. when the tide was low, according to lifeguards.
Lifeguards said the man was cliff diving when he hit his head on a reef and was knocked unconscious. A passerby called 911.
The man was then airlifted to a local hospital to be treated. His condition and the extent of his injuries were not immediately available.
Lifeguards said cliff diving or jumping is not allowed. Offenders face a $400 fine if caught by a police officer or lifeguard.
