BALTIMORE COUNTY — Baltimore County Fire rescued multiple people who were reported injured at parks Sunday afternoon.

Just after 11:30 a.m., there was an overland rescue reported at 1000 Lakeside Drive.

Just before 12:30 p.m., crews were called to the scene of a man who had fallen and was injured at Patapsco Valley State Park. EMS assisted in accessing the patient.

According to Baltimore County Fire, the man injured his head.

A short time later, a woman was injured from falling while riding her bike at the NC Trail located at the intersection of Sparks and Phoenix Road.

Fire crews extricated the woman who was about a half-mile into the woods. Baltimore County Fire said an ATV unit helped remove the patient.

The woman suffered non-life-threatening, according to EMS.

Baltimore County Fire said all patients from Sunday's overland and wooded area rescues have been extricated and taken to area hospitals.
