Firefighters pulled a man from the riverbank at the Sutherland dog park on Monday afternoon.

Crews said they were met in the parking lot by the caller, who directed them to the area the man was reported to be.

Fire officials said the rescue was hampered due to the location of the man along with steep and slippery conditions.

A low-angle technical rope rescue system was used to safely remove the man.
