A man was rescued from Pirate’s Cove near Westward Beach on Sunday, Aug. 9, according to a Facebook post from the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station. 

The man sustained a broken leg while hiking in the area and had to be airlifted out of the area, according to the post. 

Capt. Ralston of Los Angeles County Fire Department Station 71 said the man, who was a tourist, was in the surf, where it was possible he came into contact with rocks.

"It was not a fall,” Ralston said of the man’s injury.
