A naked man was coaxed out of a crawlspace beneath a Sherman Oaks apartment building today, and then firefighters took him to a hospital to be examined.

Urban Search & Rescue personnel were summoned by Los Angeles police at around 10:45 a.m. to the 14900 block of Dickens Street for what was termed a "behavioral emergency," according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The man was coaxed out and taken to a hospital in an ambulance with police on board as a precaution, Humphrey said.

He appeared to be in his mid-20s, according to ABC7, which reported that residents called police after seeing the naked man in the neighborhood.
