Two men were taken to Scripps La Jolla Trauma Center after Encinitas lifeguards and firefighters rescued one man off of a bluff around E Street and another man who had fallen 75 to 100 feet down to the beach below.
Both have sustained moderate injuries, according to a press release.
Emergency crews and lifeguards discovered the first man on the beach shortly after 1 p.m. and were tending to him when they spotted the second man on the side of the bluff, according to Joint Fire Management Services Battalion Chief Robbie Ford.
According to a press release, Sheriff’s deputies said the two males were playing Pokémon GO on their cell phones, when they went over the side to retrieve “prizes.”
