Copter rescues man from San Bruno Mountain
Steve Rubenstein, Chronicle Staff Report
(02-26) 10:35 PST DALY CITY -- A Daly City man was rescued by helicopter from a wooded hillside on San Bruno Mountain after he became trapped while trying to retrieve his model airplane, authorities said Tuesday.
The 44-year-old man, who was not identified, called 911 on his cell phone about 6:45 p.m. Monday, saying it was dark and he couldn't make his way down the hill. Daly City firefighters summoned a Coast Guard helicopter, which arrived a half hour later.
"It was very thick brush and very steep," said Fire Department inspector Angelina Ciucci. "It would have taken a long time to get hand crews in there to rescue him."
The helicopter hovered while a Coast Guardsman was lowered on a rescue harness and the man was lifted to safety. There were no injuries.
The model airplane was not retrieved.
