A teenager needed to be airlifted for treatment after she fell about 20 feet at a popular waterfall in the Angeles National Forest.

Los Angeles County firefighters were dispatched at 4:38 p.m. Sunday to Hermit Falls in the Chantry Flat hiking area and located a female about 17 or 18 years old, according to a department spokesman.

The girl suffered unspecified injuries and was airlifted to a hospital in unknown condition, he said.

Hermit Falls is a popular site for cliff jumpers.

Last year, an 18-year-old man died after jumping 50 feet from the top of the waterfall into a pond.
