MISSION BEACH: A 19-year-old San Diego fisherman was seriously injured about 6 a.m. yesterday when he was apparently stung by a rockfish and then fell between large boulders on a jetty.
The man, who was not identified, was pulled from where he fell by two friends, who called 911.
The man was treated on the Mission Beach jetty by paramedics and taken to a La Jolla hospital, said Lt. Andy Lerum of the San Diego Lifeguard Service. Lerum said the man's injuries were not expected to be life-threatening.
Otherwise, 137,000 people visited San Diego beaches yesterday. Lifeguards performed 40 rescues. No other people were seriously injured, officials said.

Our headlines are selected entirely by computer algorithms, based on factors like how often and where a story appears online. Google News has no human editors selecting stories or deciding which ones deserve top placement.
This is very much in the tradition of Google Web Search, which relies on the collective judgment of online publishers to determine which sites offer the most valuable and relevant information. Similarly, Google News relies on the collective judgment of online news organizations to determine which stories are most deserving of inclusion and prominence on the News homepage.
A Google News sitemap is a file that allows you to have more control over the content you submit to Google News. It also helps speed up the discovery of your pages, an important first step in the article crawling and indexing processes.
Creating a News sitemap allows you to tell us about all your news articles, their publication date and keywords. We especially recommend using a News sitemap if your site is new, has dynamic content or requires users to follow several links to reach your news content.
