A Life Flight Trust team has this morning airlifted an injured mountain biker from the Belmont Regional Park in Wellington.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter, with a Wellington Free Ambulance paramedic onboard, was called at approximately 10.00am this morning.

The helicopter was able to land close to the patient who had fallen from his mountain bike after striking some hidden fence posts.

The rider, a 35 year old Wellington man, was given pain relief at the scene and then transported to Wellington Hospital Emergency Department, where he is being assessed for a suspected fractured collar bone.
