The Kern County Fire Department rescued an elderly man who had fallen off a cliff near his residence in Hart Flat.
The incident happened early Wednesday afternoon after KCFD received a report that the 91-year-old man had fallen and rolled down a slope and into the ravine near his home. 
Due to the remote location and steep terrain, a rescue helicopter was used to hoist the man up on a basket stretcher. 
The man was flown to Keene Helibase and then transported to a Bakersfield hospital with multiple injuries.
