Injured mountain biker rescued from Henry Coe Park
Apr 28, 2009

A police helicopter and off-road motorcycles participated in the
search for two injured mountain bikers from Henry W. Coe State Park
east of Gilroy Sunday morning, according to the Santa Clara County
Sheriff's Office.

Sgt. Don Morrissey said two cyclists signaled for help using
electronic beacons inside the park. The first signal came to the
dispatch center about 6 a.m. The CHP searched for the victims with a
helicopter, and the Sheriff's Office used off-road motorcycles to look
for the injured people in the park's rugged terrain, Morrissey said.

After the two cyclists were found several hours later, the searchers
determined that one had been injured in a bicycle crash, and the other
complained of stomach pains. Morrissey said the crash victim was
transported to a local hospital by ambulance.

Morrissey did not have any details about the type of injury the
hospitalized cyclist suffered, or about the victims themselves.

The cyclists were found a couple of miles from the end of Gilroy Hot
Springs Road, which enters through the southwestern side of the park.
