A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy is being transported by helicopter after falling ill this afternoon.

The deputy is being treated by Los Angeles County Fire Fighters and is being prepared for a copter transport to an area hospital, said Sgt. Brett Lisle of the San Dimas Sheriff’s Station.

The 31-year-old deputy became sick and experienced nausea and vomiting on Glendora Mountain Road and Glendora Ridge Road, according to broadcast traffic.

Fire fighters were dispatched around 4:12 p.m. and arrived at 4:33 p.m. to tend to the deputy, said Inspector Randall Wright of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

“He was transported to Foothill Presbyterian Hospital where he is undergoing testing and observation to figure out why he became ill,” Lisle said.
