Montgomery County Fire Rescue units were called to a remote trail in Black Hill Regional Park in Boyds on Friday morning to come to the aid of an injured bicyclist on a trail near Little Seneca Lake.
According to MCFRS senior spokesman Pete Piringer, MCRS units were called to the area at about 12:45 pm on Friday, November 23 to assist an bicyclist who was injured while riding in the park.
According to Piringer, the cyclist was injured in an area of 10 Mile Trail near Chrisman Hill Drive and Clarksburg Road in Boyds, in the park about four miles from the parking area. Once EMS rescuers located the injured party, it was determined the best way to transport the victim was via boat.
MCFRS water units launched from the Black Hill Regional Park boat ramp and transported the injured biker over water to an area where the adult cyclist could then be transported via ambulance to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. More two dozen firefighters were on the scene to assist in the rescue.
