NORTH ATTLEBORO — Firefighters Saturday had to rescue a 22-year-old man from deep woods after he was involved in a dirt bike accident.

The accident was reported by a friend about 3:20 p.m. a half-mile into the woods in the area of 125 Sheldonville Road.

An ATV-type vehicle from Cumberland’s fire department was used to move the victim about 4 p.m. to the main road, where he was taken in a North Attleboro ambulance to Rhode Island Hospital, Providence.

The man, who was not identified, suffered shoulder and back injuries.
