Paramedics say a west Ottawa man will be nominated for an award after
he relinquished his front yard to a rescue helicopter and offered his
all-terrain vehicle to help paramedics treat a stranded and injured
mountain biker.

Just before 4 p.m. Thursday, Ottawa paramedics responded with police
to an area near the Kanata Lakes mountain bike trails.

A 21-year-old man had suffered a severe injury to his leg and did not
know where he was. He was unable to make it out of the woods, so other
mountain bikers in the area started first aid treatment.

Emergency crews blasted sirens from Huntmar Road and other streets in
the area until the bikers could hear them. A rescue helicopter also
responded, but could not spot the bikers in the woods from above.

Kanata resident Brian Clark, who lives on Huntmar Road, heard the
sirens and helicopter circling. He then offered his lawn as a
helicopter-landing pad.

Clark, who was familiar with the area and terrain according to
paramedics, also used his ATV to bring paramedics into the dense bush
and rocky terrain.

Then around 5:30 p.m., police came upon the patient located on the
area's New Outback trail. Paramedics arrived 15 minutes later and
began treatment on the mountain biker's leg.

The mountain biker received more treatment once paramedics reached an
ambulance, but refused transportation to hospital.

Huntmar Road. was closed during Thursday's afternoon rush hour but
reopened in the early evening.

Did you have fantasies that a helicopter would swoop down and help you
escape from jail when you were incarcerated?
