Hurt cyclist rescued by military

A military helicopter has been used to help the emergency services
rescue a cyclist injured in a forest in central Scotland.
The man was hurt while mountain biking in Carron Glen, west of Denny,
at lunchtime.
The ambulance service said its medical helicopter had been unable to
land near the injured cyclist so it sought help from the Ministry of
Defence.
A rapid response vehicle and ambulance also made their way to the
scene.

Anyone know what happened?. Hope all concerned are ok. :biggrin:

Was going to head up there myself yesterday afternoon but something came up so we didn't manage. Was up there today with 2 mates from work though.

I hope he's alright, always worried when they think a helicopter is necessary.
