A teenage hiker was hurt Tuesday after falling down a steep hillside in Santa Susana Pass State Park in Chatsworth.

CHATSWORTH (CBSLA) — A 16-year-old hiker was rescued Tuesday after falling down a steep hillside in Santa Susana Pass State Park in Chatsworth.

The Los Angeles Fire Department sent in a rescue crew and helicopter to the park, just off Santa Susana Road, to rescue the teen.

Officials said the teen fell 200 feet down the ravine into an area of heavy brush, making a helicopter rescue impossible.

Firefighters took the teen boy to an area hospital with an ankle injury.
