Injured paraglider rescued

SAN JACINTO, Calif. -  A Riverside County sheriff's helicopter rescued an injured paraglider from remote area north of San Jacinto Saturday.

The fall was reported at about 7:53 p.m. Saturday in the 260 block of 

Soboba Road, said Jennifer Fuhrman of the Riverside County Fire Department.

``One patient was hoisted from scene to the Soboba Flight Park by a Riverside County Sheriff's Helicopter,'' Fuhrman said. ``One patient was then transported with minor injuries to a local area hospital via ground ambulance.''

The rescue was completed at about 10:40 p.m.

The helicopter rescue was required ``due to the difficult terrain and patient being inaccessible by off road vehicle,'' she said.
