A male, possibly a teenager, was airlifted Sunday from a remote trail in the O’Melveny Park area of the Santa Susana Mountains for an apparent ankle injury, authorities said.

Firefighters and paramedics were dispatched at 10:19 a.m. to O’Melveny Park, 17300 Sesnon Blvd., said Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department. The extent of the ankle injury was not immediately known.

“The patient will be hoisted aboard the LAFD rescue helicopter for in-flight care during direct transport to an area hospital,” Humphrey said.
