SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) *

A mountain biker was rescued in El Dorado County on Saturday after falling more than 200 feet down the side of a cliff, authorities said.

The cyclist suffered "moderate injuries" in the fall near the Confluence Trail along the American River, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP said it used a helicopter to hoist the cyclist to safety from what was described as difficult terrain. Cal Fire and California State Parks personnel also responded.

The H-24 landed on Highway 49 and transferred the mountain biker to a waiting ambulance, CHP said. No other information was provided.
