TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A 64-year-old man who went horseback riding over the weekend was treated for serious injuries at a local hospital.

The Cochise County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue team was called to the San Pedro River area in Fairbank for the injured horseback rider around 10:30 a.m. on Aug. 31.

The search and rescue team, an HCI ambulance and Arizona Lifeline personnel responded to the scene about a quarter mile from the injured man because the area was not accessible by a ground ambulance, according to the CCSO. The crews carried him to the helicopter that transported him to the University Medical Trauma Center for treatment.
