Fernie Search and Rescue was called out to assist an injured biker at the Fairy Creek trails and recreation area on Saturday.

The injured 35-year-old male biker on the Swine Flu trail had gashed the rear of his leg; his girlfriend bandaged and stopped the bleeding and he was able to make his way back down the switchbacks to the power line with the aid of two other bikers.

Fernie SAR dispatched an ATV to meet the biker at the power line and bring him down to the red gate where the British Columbia Ambulance Service was waiting.
