Crews found a second man who was unconscious about 50 feet down the cliff.
Both men were taken to Scripps La Jolla Hospital. The extent of their injuries was unknown.
A sign posted on the fence warns the public that the bluffs are unstable but the men had climbed over to find a character in the popular video game, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.
