The patient was administered Narcan, after which he stood up, ran off, and ended up falling down a cliff.

He was found by a police officer 60-70 feet down a bluff.

Responders had to use a Coast Guard helicopter because they were concerned about the tide coming in.

The chopper crew was able to get the man safely to Harborview.
