Mountain Biker Winched To Safety

A 39 year old male from Nelson was winched to safety before being flown to Nelson hospital at midday today (15th August 2010) by the Summit Rescue Helicopter.

He had been mountain biking with others when he had a fall badly injuring his leg in the Sharland forest, Sharland valley east of Nelson. Because of the remoteness the St John Advanced Paramedic crewmember had to be winched to the scene, after treating the injury the biker was winched onboard the Summit Rescue Helicopter before being flown to Nelson hospital for further treatment
