LOS ANGELES - A 67-year-old California grandfather has been rescued after spending six days trapped at the bottom of a 200-foot-deep (60-meter-deep) forest ravine, authorities said.

David La Vau was in serious but stable condition in a Los Angeles County hospital on Friday, they said.

Firefighters airlifted La Vau from the bottom of the ravine along a winding mountain road on Thursday, Los Angeles County fire inspector Matt Levesque said.

La Vau's family told rescuers that he had spent six days at the bottom of the ravine in the Angeles National Forest after his car careened off the road, he said.
