Rescuers help teen mountain biker after fall

Crews from the Western Beacons mountain search and rescue team help after boy had serious fall from bike

Police and mountain rescue crews helped out after a 13-year-old mountain biker suffered a “heavy fall” in the Beacons today. The boy was treated at the scene and stretchered to a nearby road where ambulance crews took him to hospital.

A spokesman for the Western Beacons Mountain Rescue team said: “While out mountain biking a 13-year-old male unfortunately came off his bike sustaining potentially serious injuries. The Western Beacons Mountain rescue team responded and our team doctor treated the casualty so the team could extract him safely. The male was then taken to hospital by ambulance for further treatment”.
