Firefighters, helicopter rescue mountain biker

Laguna Beach firefighters rescued a mountain biker who crashed while racing down the Telonics Bike Trail on Saturday, according to a news release from the Fire Department.

Another biker found the injured man and called 911 at 10:02 a.m. Saturday.

Once on scene, firefighters had to hike down the trail head to reach the victim. Due to the victim’s injuries and the terrain of the area, an Orange County Fire Authority helicopter was requested to airlift the victim to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo.

The biker suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
