A man called 911 around 4 p.m. to report that a male friend in his 50s was trapped near the Telonics mountain bike trail in the 2800 block of Laguna Canyon Road, said Sgt. Tim Kleiser of the Laguna Beach Police Department. The unidentified man rode his bike and fell from the trail into an area where he couldn’t climb up, according to Kleiser. It took about an hour for rescuers to reach the man due to the location, “treacherous terrain” and falling rocks, said Steve Concialdi, a spokesman for the Orange County Fire Authority. When authorities reached the mountain biker, he was treated and stabilized before being hoisted into a helicopter around 6:40 p.m., officials said. The fire authority and Laguna Beach fire officials took part in the rescue. The mountain biker, who likely suffered some fractures and internal injuries, was taken to the Orange County Global Medical Center in Santa Ana in critical condition, as of Friday evening, Concialdi said. Fortunately, the biker was wearing a helmet and thick vegetation absorbed his fall, Concialdi added.
