A 21-year-old man was flown to Nelson Hospital yesterday afternoon after being thrown several meters from the motorbike he was riding near Blenheim.
A Nelson Marlborough rescue Helicopter was dispatched to the Onamalutu Valley, where the men had landed heavily and sustained several serious injuries.
He was treated at the scene by a St John paramedic and an on-board paramedic before being flown to the hospital for further treatment.
The man had to be winched from the scene due to it being a forested area.
