A man was flown to the hospital today after suffering a possible serious injury while mountain biking near Cilcain, Mold.

The Welsh Ambulance Service received an initial call on Sunday afternoon and quickly passed it on to North Wales Police, who sought assistance from local search and rescue volunteers.

North East Wales Search and Rescue (NEWSAR)  responded with two Landrovers and quickly determined that the man needed to be evacuated to the hospital as soon as possible.

The casualty was carried a short way to the helicopter by NEWSAR team members before being flown to hospital.

Thanks to the quick thinking and cooperation of the various emergency response teams and the helpful information provided by the man’s friend, he was able to receive prompt medical attention.
