Falls are Dangerous

Last Saturday a hiker slipped and fell from the waterfall in Monrovia Canyon Park.

The fire department reports: "Firefighter/Paramedics hiked over a mile up the trail to find an adult patient with injuries to the hip and lower back sustained from a nearly-30-foot fall. Advanced life support procedures were initiated as the patient was placed on a special 'stokes basket' gurney and carefully carried out of the Canyon. Due to the nature of incident the patient was transported to the Trauma Department at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena for further treatment."
Nice to look at the falls from below, but please don't climb up there. Very dangerous.
