(KSL News) -- A mountain biker is called a hero for rescuing a teenager trapped and bleeding after a four-wheeling accident in Pleasant Grove.

David Morris met the family of the 15-year-old Ashley Heil, last night at the hospital.

Morris was biking yesterday up a trail he'd never traveled before.

And what's more, it was not his usual exercise time, AND he had packed a first aid kit he did not normally carry.

Ashley was with friends who tried to drive a jeep up a steep slope.

The jeep slid backwards, throwing Ashley into barbed wire.

She was bleeding badly when Morris arrived.

David Morris, Rescuer: "I personally believe that there are spiritual promptings from a heavenly source that guided me to be there at the right place, at the right time, with the right equipment."
