Short haul rescue of injured mountain biker

Short haul rescue of injured mountain biker

On Friday, 05/12/17, at approximately 1:30 PM, Sheriff Helicopter STARR 3 overheard a call on the radio for Crockett Fire of an injured mountain biker in the remote hills south of Crockett. STARR 3 responded and within minutes located the injured mountain biker approximately one mile up Sugar City Trail, located south of Cummings Skyway. The biker was on the trail but not moving and Fire had not yet arrived at the scene. STARR 3 landed nearby and deployed a Flight Rescue Technician and a CON Fire Captain/Paramedic to evaluate the victim. Crockett Fire 178A responded and staged just off Cummings Skyway. Due to the victim's injuries (broken right shoulder and hip) and the extended time it would take to carry the patient out one mile on the moderately steep and unstable single track terrain, the CON Fire Captain/Paramedic requested STARR 3 short haul the victim to awaiting medical units.

STARR 3’s Tactical Flight Officer set up the helicopter for a short-haul rescue. The victim was extracted to an awaiting medical unit and transported to the hospital for further treatment.
