Sad To Hear
A California man fell to his death Sunday.

A Glendale man died Sunday, a day after falling 50 feet while hiking in Los Padres National Forest near Gorman, authorities said.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Department's Air Squad 9 rescue helicopter was called about 2:30 p.m. Saturday to the Trail Canyon area near the Hungry Valley State Vehicular Recreation Area, according to a statement from the department.

Hugh Blanchard, 79, and his friends were found at the base of a waterfall near the Castaic Mine. Blanchard was unconscious, according to the release.

My condolences to his friends and family.
