A 14-year-old boy from South Philadelphia was rescued at Tyler State Park in Bucks County after he lost control of his bicycle and went down a very steep hill. A park ranger rappelled down the hill with a rope and got the boy to firefighters who took him across the Neshaminy Creek in a rescue boat to a waiting ambulance. The boy suffered pelvic injuries but will recover fully. The park ranger said that the boy was lucky not to have been injured more seriously. He was riding a bike that did not have any brakes.
