A 21-year-old hiker from Chatsworth was rescued after falling 60 feet and suffering a head injury at Malibu Creek State Park Sunday.

Personnel from the L.A. County Sheriff's Malibu Search and Rescue Team responded to a report of a fallen hiker around 5:45 p.m.

Officials lowered a paramedic down by helicopter, rescued the man and flew him to a nearby trauma center for treatment.

The man, who tumbled onto vehicle-sized boulders while climbing, is now recovering.

A hiker was rescued from the same area last week.
