A man was seriously injured when the stairway he was using for access to a San Clemente beach collapsed. Reportedly, the man was either ascending or descending the steep stairway when one of the boards gave way and the man fell. The accident resulted in a hip displacement and a minor head injury, and the man was taken to a local hospital, according to authorities.
The city of San Clemente closed the staircase and put up barricades to prevent anyone from using it, while lifeguards check the other slabs for security. Apparently, the lifeguards have found a few other loose boards so far.
The staircase provided access to the 204 beach, a popular destination for surfers. The beach can now be accessed by another staircase at Dije Court and Buena Vista, or by using the San Clemente beach trail.
