BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) - A motorcyclist was rescued after plunging 100 feet below a roadway in Southern California’s San Bernardino Mountains.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department says the 48-year-old rider was thrown from the motorcycle in a single-vehicle crash Sunday afternoon on State Route 38.

The San Gorgonio Search and Rescue Team climbed down to the victim and found he had major injuries, but the steepness of the terrain prevented them from carrying out.

A sheriff’s rescue helicopter was called in and the victim was hoisted aboard and flown to a hospital.
