Seriously Injured Cyclist Rescued Through Firefighter’s Efforts

Lake Clark National Park and Preserve

National Park News

While on a scheduled run on the River Mountain loop trail in Boulder City on the morning of August 28th, wildland firefighter Todd Bates came upon a man lying at the top of a hill near a bike path. The man was not moving and was lying in a fetal position. Bates determined that he’d fallen off of his bike and sustained injuries; he dialed 911 and assisted the man until Boulder City paramedics arrived on scene. The man was transported to a hospital, where he will undergo surgery for his injuries, including fractured vertebrae and a shattered hand.  Bates’ quick reaction and medical skills are credited with saving this man’s life.
