Two helicopters were used.

 

Firefighters from the Los Angeles Fire Department were notified of an injured biker off the 17500 block of Mulholland Drive at around 8:43 a.m., according to LAFD Spokesman Erik Scott. A rescue was then undertaken to remove the unnamed man off of the slope.

 

Around 20 firefighters in total were dispatched for the rescue, which included paramedics and a battalion chief on-scene. Two helicopters were used as well, and one was utilized to actually hoist the man up at around 10:00 a.m., while the other was used for “communication and oversight,” as noted by Mr. Scott.

 

The man was successfully retrieved and was taken to a local hospital in serious condition. Officials have not yet disclosed who made the call for help.
