Burbank Paramedics were called at 2:08 pm on Sunday for a report of a bicycle rider who had fallen on the trail above Stough Canyon Nature Center in Burbank.
Upon arriving at the Nature Center, they took their Patrol Unit up the fire road about a mile and found a 44 year-old man who had fallen and was unable to move his legs. Feeling that bringing the victim back down in their patrol vehicle may hurt the victim more, they called for a helicopter to airlift the victim.
Burbank called L. A. Fire, with whom they have a reciprocal agreement , and asked for one of their helicopters to assist in the rescue. The victim was then air lifted to County USC Medical Center where his injuries and condition have still not been released.
The entire rescue took about one hour.
