Big Bear, CA, August 2, 2016 – On Saturday, July 30, at approximately 10:40 a.m., Sheriff’s Air Rescue 07 was dispatched to the Snow Summit Ski Resort to assist the San Bernardino County Fire Department regarding an injured mountain biker. The victim, Jamie Adamson, was riding her mountain bike near the ski resort when she fell from the bicycle. During the fall, Adamson suffered major injuries and was unable to walk.
Fire Department personnel arrived and located Adamson before the crew arrived. The personnel determined Adamson would need to be hoist rescued due to her injuries and the remote location.
Once the helicopter was in position, an Air Medic was lowered down to Adamson. After a brief assessment, Adamson was placed into a litter and hoisted into the helicopter, followed by the Air Medic. Adamson was flown to Loma Linda University Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
