Los Angeles Fire Department personnel rescued a lost, naked hiker stranded in a remote area of Chatsworth Monday evening.
Bystanders alerted the rescuers around 8:44 p.m. after they heard cries for help at Jeffrey Mark Court near Devonshire Street. LAFD personnel responded by ground and air, located the victim, hoisted him from the remote location and took him to a predetermined helicopter landing area, said spokesman Nicholas Prange.
An LAFD helicopter located the man around 9:30 p.m., sitting in the brush without clothes, KCAL reported.
The hiker was taken to a hospital with minor injuries, Prange said.
