Santa Barbara County Firefighters responded to a report of someone falling from a balcony in Isla Vista on Thursday evening.

At 11:19 p.m., firefighters arrived with two engines and a medical unit on Del Playa Drive. They determined an 18-year-old male fell approximately 70 feet to the ocean below. 

A rope system was not used to access the victim as firefighters had close access to the victim from the street.

The victim was transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for evaluation.
