A 26-year-old Moorpark man died Saturday from head injuries he sustained last weekend after falling into a concrete drainage ditch in Moorpark, Ventura County coroner's officials said.

Rafael Soto hit his head when he slipped and fell Sept. 25 while trying to climb out of the concrete-lined Arroyo Simi Flood Control Channel that cuts through the city, a Sheriff's Department spokesman said.

Soto, who was conscious when officers first arrived at the scene, later fell into unconsciousness, a Simi Valley Hospital spokeswoman said.
