Firefighters were working Saturday on the ground and in the air to rescue a mountain biker who suffered facial trauma on the Haines Canyon Mountainway in the San Gabriel Mountains, authorities said.
The effort was reported at 4:04 p.m. in a remote section of the trail, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey.
An LAFD helicopter was getting into position to hoist, care for and take him to a regional trauma center, Humphrey said.
