SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A person stranded on a cliffside in the Torrey Pines area had to be airlifted to safety early Tuesday morning.

At around 4:30 a.m., a person called 911 to report 3 or 4 people trapped on a hillside near the Torrey Pines Gliderport at 2800 Torrey Pines Scenic Dr.

When rescue crews arrived at the scene, they spotted only one person stuck on the cliff. The stranded person told crews that the others were able to get to safety on their own.

It took crews about an hour to get to the person and then have the person airlifted off the cliff.

The person was taken to the hospital with injuries of unknown severity.
