Sheriff’s Helicopter Air Rescue 308 lifted an unconscious mountain bike rider to safety from the Loma Linda Hills Sunday morning.
At 10 a.m. Jan. 10, the San Bernardino County Fire Department received a report of the injury to Ronnie Santos, a 57-year-old Highland resident. Due to the terrain and medical condition of the victim, the crew performed a hoist rescue.
Sheriff’s Air Medics P. Peng and G. Yee were hoisted down to the victim. He was placed in a rescue basket and hoisted back up to the aircraft. He was then transported to Loma Linda University Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
