The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter was tasked to the Wollumbin (Mount Warning) track at lunchtime Monday after reports that a 40-year-old female walker had suffered a lower leg injury while descending the mountain.
Police, SES, VRA and NSW Ambulance personnel were all involved in the recovery of the walker.
A critical care paramedic was successfully winched down to treat the walker and establish the most appropriate recovery method.
Helicopter staff subsequently conducted a winch recovery of the walker from the track.
The patient was treated for lower leg fractures and was flown to Uki sports field where she was transferred into a road ambulance and driven to Murwillumbah Hospital in a stable condition.
