Chasing Pet Bird, Woman Falls Onto Cement Floor Of LA River

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A woman chasing her wayward pet bird was injured when she fell 20 feet off a concrete wall into a flood control structure on the Los Angeles River.

Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott says rescue crews needed ladders to retrieve the woman from the cement bottom of the structure in Studio City.

Scott described the woman’s injuries as non-life-threatening.

A net was reportedly used to capture the bird just downriver.
