A mountain biker was rescued by helicopter after suffering several broken bones and a head injury Saturday in Briones Regional Park in Walnut Creek, authorities said.

The STARR 1 helicopter was deployed about 3:30 p.m. to the Beacon Ridge Trail after reports that a man was seriously injured, according to the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office.

The man, whose name was not released, had broken bones and a head injury, police said.

A Contra Costa County fire captain, paramedic and flight rescue technician flew near the victim’s location and hiked to a remote trail to reach him, police said.

They strapped the man to a stretcher, which was then clipped to a rope attached to the helicopter, a video of the rescue shows.

The team then moved the victim a half mile to where rescue vehicles were stationed. The man was then taken to a hospital.
