L.A. County sheriff’s deputies rescued a female hiker Monday after she fell 20 feet over a waterfall in the Angeles National Forest, authorities reported.

The hiker, whose condition was unknown, could not move and had to hoisted out of Hermit Falls by a search-and-rescue helicopter. The incident occurred about 12:10 p.m.

Deputies said there have been seven rescues in the Hermit Falls area this year, including one on Friday.
