A 28-year-old man was trying to pee off Dilworth Mountain in Kelowna when he fell 60 feet down an embankment.
The incident happened around 4 p.m. on June 11.
A helicopter was called in to transport him, but due to his pain and how long it would take, first responders removed him and transported him on a Gator ATV.
“(He has) some major lower-body injuries, possible broken ankles, broken legs,” says Tim Light, a platoon captain with the Kelowna Fire Department.
The man, who was riding his BMX bike at the time and decided to take a pee break, called 911 shortly after his fall.
Light says he was conscious when first responders got to him.
“He was in definite pain.”
