Police have implored people wanting to climb Mount Warning (Wollumbin) to plan carefully and follow information signs after another two bushwalkers had to be rescued from the track at about 9pm on Friday (January 20).
The pair had to be rescued from Mt Warning after ‘heavy rain and poor lighting made it to dangerous for the bushwalkers to climb down the mountain,’ according to police reports.
The bushwalkers called for assistance and were later rescued with the assistance of police, SES and VRA.
They were safely escorted to car park arriving at midnight suffering from minor cuts and exhaustion.
The incident has prompted police to emphasise how important it is for intending climbers to read and follow the warning and information signs posted at the Mt Warning car park and on the park’s website for the best times and conditions to undertake the walk safely.
Late last year a man was killed by a lightning strike while camping near the summit.
