Injured mountain biker airlifted to hospital

10/09/2009 6:00:01

An elderly man has been airlifted to hospital after coming off his
mountain bike in the Marlborough Sounds.

The man in his 80s from Kenepuru Heads was reported overdue from a
trip to the Queen Charlotte track at 2pm yesterday. Police search and
rescue members found him on the track with hip and leg injuries.

Nelson's rescue helicopter was called in at 11pm because of the
remoteness of the steep, bushclad location. The crew used night vision
goggles to spot him and a St John advanced paramedic was winched down.
The man was treated on the spot and was then winched out.
