Lifeline Helicopter
« on: April 08, 2012, 05:39:09 PM »
I arrived at BCSP about 3:30 today, Sunday.  Life line helicopter was on the ground in the field between the pool and mtn bike parking.  There were also a few police cars and ambulance from Columbus there.  Traffic was not allowed to drive on the road past gate up until after it took off. 


Anyone know why it was there?  I hope nothing serious.

Lifeline landing at state park
Updated on: 04.08.12At about 2:40 p.m. Sunday, town, county and conservation officers, an ambulance and Nashville Fire first responders were called to Brown County State Park for a horseback riding accident at the saddle barn, the public riding facility. A Lifeline medical helicopter was to land in the park.

Several years ago, my partner (pedalfaster) was riding on Aynes when she had a really bad crash and split her knee open.  Fortunately Alex and John Clausen were close at hand to lend first aid and fetch the park rangers.  Worried that her crash would give a bad impression to the rangers, she was very apologetic when they arrived.  They replied that her injuries were nothing compared with what the horseback riders due to themselves.  Sounds like compound fractures are a fairly common occurrence when falling off a horse.   :P

the bad news compared to our bike trails is that the horse trails are very remote with very little access. if your south of the horse camp and have an accident it could take 1 to 2 hours before help arrives. a conservation officer with a atv has to arrive to get a paramedic back to you. if lifeline is needed the only good place to land to hoosiers nest or the pool area.  so be safe and carry a phone.
