Fernie Search and Rescue take injured biker to hospital

Fernie Search and Rescue members were sent out to find an injured biker on the P9 trail on Sunday.

SAR officials said a ground crew was dispatched to stabilize the patient.

A helicopter longline team responded as well and transported him to the BC Ambulance Service in Fernie.

“We would like to acknowledge the support of our community partners Ascent Helicopters and Teck. Both had to suspend their joint work program today in order to free up a machine to respond to this rescue – a ground extrication would have been very challenging in view of the injuries sustained,” said SAR officials.
