Technical Rescue; INC#1213; 05:29PM; 20640 W Valerio St;; #Winnetka; Firefighters responded for an adult male who appears to have fallen (or jumped?) from a bridge, into the flood control channel at least 15 feet below. Firefighters took a rigid stretcher (called a litter basket) and secured the conscious patient. To get the patient up to street level, firefighters used ropes/lashing and a ladder, in a rescue maneuver called a "moving ladder slide," where the litter basket is fastened to the ladder and then the ladder (with patient) is passed along a line of firefighters to overcome challenging terrain. The patient was safely brought back up to street level and transported to a local trauma center in serious condition. Nothing further. ; FS 72; Batt 17; Valley Bureau; Council District 3; BC17 E104 E273 E72 E73 EM15 HR3 RA104 RA72 T73 UR88; CH8; 17; Nicholas Prange
