A bicyclist who crashed and dislocated a shoulder while riding in Annadel State Park on Saturday was airlifted from a remote hillside trail to an ambulance waiting at Spring Lake Regional Park, emergency personnel said.

The unidentified man crashed and hurt himself late Saturday morning on Marsh Trail, about a half mile up from Canyon Trail, emergency dispatchers said..

To eliminate the time emergency medics would need to hike in and carry the bicyclist out, the Sonoma County sheriff’s helicoper crew dropped a paramedic into the site who splinted the patient, packaged him up and delivered him in a basket on a long line to the ambulance waiting at Spring Lake, Bennett Valley Fire Engineer Travis Browne said.

The man, whose name was not available, was then driven to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital for treatment, Browne said.
