The call for an injured mountainbiker came in at approximately 4:20pm on Saturday April 6th. The injured individual was located about 1/2 mile up El Prieto Canyon. AMRT was first on scene with County and Forestry Fire not far behind.
The biker had sustained an ankle injury, and it was determined the best plan of action was to load him into the litter and wheel him out out of the canyon. Members of AMRT took up their respective position as haul and brake crew while members from Fire assisted with the patient and litter.
Once safely out of the canyon the patient was transferred to a waiting ambulance where he was transported to the hospital for treatment.
