We were asked to assist a mountain biker who had come off his bike and injured his chest on his handle bars. We sent up 2 vehicles to assist him, as well as an EMAS paramedic. In addition, we had requested assistance from a Helimed aircraft. Fortunately one was available and arrived at the cas site to evacuate the casualty, who was being treated by our team, the EMAS paramedic and a passing doctor.
