A 34-year-old man has suffered leg injuries after falling three metres off rocks at Brays Beach, south of Broken Head, early this morning.

A spokesperson for Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter, which was called to the scene around 7am, told Echonetdaily the man had been rock climbing with a friend when the accident occurred.

The spokesperson said the man was winched from the rocks and treated at the scene by the helicopter’s medical retrieval doctor and paramedic. He was then airlifted to Lismore Base Hospital.

The man’s injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
