A helicopter, an ATV and a team of firefighters and police officers came together to rescue a man who was injured in the Scott’s Run Nature Preserve on Tuesday evening (March 5).

According to a Facebook post by the police department, when the man didn’t return home after a hike, his sister became worried as temperatures dropped.

Police said the man had broken his leg and was stuck on the hiking trail for several hours. Officers were able to keep him stable and comfortable until firefighters used an ATV to reach him and carry him out.

“Our Fairfax One team began searching and was able to quickly locate the man,” police said in the post. “They then directed our officers and the Fire and Rescue team through the rough and dark terrain to reach him.”

“We’re happy to report that, thanks to this great collaboration and quick work, his is now safe!” police said in the post.
