A paramedic borrowed a bicycle to help save an injured teenager who was down an inaccessible path in Darlington.
The boy came off his bike on Saturday on a cycle track which was unreachable by road for ambulance crews.
One paramedic ran, while a second commandeered a bicycle and rushed to the scene while waiting for the Great North Air Ambulance helicopter.
The 16-year-old was flown to James Cook University Hospital with serious head, face and neck injuries.
He is said to be in a serious but stable condition.
