A pilot was injured Friday morning when his small plane went down on a beach in the Rancho Palos Verdes area.

The report was received at about noon from Portuguese Bend, a nature reserve near the ocean. Aerial video showed the plane upside-down on the ground near the water line below Trump National Golf Club.

The pilot is "alert and talking with minor injuries," according to a tweet from the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Aerial video showed a fire-rescue crew transporting the pilot from the area in the bed of a pickup.
