The Life Saver Rescue Helicopter was called upon to retrieve a 47-year-old female bushwalker on Saturday after she fell down the chain section of the track near the summit of Mount Warning (Wollumbin).
The walker suffered facial and shoulder injuries as a result of the fall.
The Helicopter doctor and a NSW Ambulance paramedic were winched down the to the summit of Mt Warning and then had to make their way down the chain section of the track to access the female walker.
The Westpac Rescue Helicopter relocated to await a radio call from the medical rescue team to return to the summit and recovery all three before last light. The winch recovery was conducted from the summit of Mt Warning.
Due to the difficult access the Helicopter was required to conduct a rescue hoist recovery using the air rescue vest.
The female patient was transported to Tweed Heads Hospital where she is in a stable condition.
