Firefighters free boy trapped in boulders at Orange County beach
Lifeguards reported the Monday incident to the Laguna Beach Fire Department, Division Chief Dan Stefano told the Huntington Beach Independent.
The Aliso Viejo boy, either 14 or 15 years old, was climbing the rocks when the sand gave way and rocks collapsed around his leg.
"The biggest challenge was that his entire thigh was pinned," Stefano said.
He was extricated after about an hour and taken to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo.
