Man dies in bluff collapse at Torrey Pines

August 20, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
San Diego authorities say a man has died after a stretch of rugged oceanside bluff collapsed on him at Torrey Pines State Beach. The section of cliff gave way early Wednesday afternoon, several hundred feet below the Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego.

The man suffered severe head trauma after being hit by falling rock.

The beach and parts of the bluff surrounding the collapse have been closed.

San Diego police spokesman Gary Hassen says the man's family are being directed to a nearby hospital.
