Second air ambulance scramble to mountain biker in Swaledale after he suffers life-threatening injuries in fall

Andrew Douglas, Deputy News Editor / @EchoADouglas

A MAN was in a critical condition after a fall during a mountain bike race this afternoon (Sunday, August 7).

It is understood that the man, believed to be in his 20s, was taking part in the 'Ard Rock Enduro' event in the Reeth area of Swaledale.

The Great North Air Ambulance was called at 1.35pm to help Yorkshire Ambulance Service.

The man, from Lincoln, suffered injuries to his chest and abdomen described as life-threatening.

He was brought to the helicopter by members of the Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team before he was flown to James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough, where his condition was said to be critical.
