The Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office identified a man who died Saturday after falling off a horse near Fort Bragg.

Servando Gomez, 54, of Fort Bragg, fell from the horse around 7 p.m. off Simpson Lane, emergency personnel said.

A REACH Air Medical Services helicopter was dispatched to airlift Gomez to a hospital, but crews were unable to land in the rural area. An ambulance instead took Gomez to the Mendocino Coast District Hospital. He died from his injuries.
