A 44-year-old man ended up stuck on a Daly City mountainside Monday while fetching a toy for his son and was rescued by a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter, authorities said.

A family member called 911 after realizing the man could not get down the San Bruno State Park mountainside. Coast Guard officials said he was about a third of a mile uphill. The Daly City Fire Department called for air assistance from the Coast Guard at 6:42 p.m.

The HH-65 helicopter swooped in for the rescue about a half-hour later. The man was not injured, the Coast Guard said.

No other information was immediately available.
