The Sonoma County Sheriff's Office helicopter was sent to rescue a mountain biker who crashed in Annadel-Trione State Park in Santa Rosa on Wednesday.

Henry 1, was dispatched after the crash left the mountain biker with an ankle injury, according to a Sonoma County Sheriff's Office Facebook post. The man was stuck in an area that was heavily wooded, so the helicopter couldn't directly reach him.

After a paramedic hiked to the man, a tactical flight officer rescued him with 100-foot line and a rescue device called a Bauman Screamer Suit, which is used to transfer people without a full-body harness. They flew to an ambulance on Bennett Ridge Road.
