A second woman in two weeks has had to be rescued from the Wollumbin (Mount Warning) track after injuring her leg.
About 12pm on Saturday (February 3), police were called to rescue an 18-year-old female who had fallen and injured her leg in wet weather on the track.
Police, ambulance and volunteer rescue personnel attended and walked up to meet the woman. The patient was located almost at the top of the mountain.
She was safely evacuated and taken to hospital for treatment.
The rescue took around four to complete.
Police have thanked the emergency personnel and volunteers for conducting the rescue in what they described as ‘treacherous conditions’.
They are reminding the public to consider the conditions before embarking the difficult mountain climb.
