IN WHAT LOOKS like a scene from an action movie, the Coast Guard swooped down to rescue a man after he fell during of a bike in the Dublin Mountains yesterday evening.

The 25-year-old was taking part in a club cycle with the Mountainbiking Assioation of Dublin (MAD) when he fell and broke his leg near Ticknock at around 7.30pm.

A paramedic and then an ambulance attended the scene and recommended he be airlifted to hospital as it was a difficult spot for the emergency services to reach.

The helicopter came from Dublin Airport and the man was brought to Tallaght Hospital to be treated for his injuries.
