A man was winched from the Mount Nardi trail at Mount Nardi, north of Nimbin, yesterday after 3pm by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.

It was reported that a 56 year-old male bush walker had slipped, 5km into the forest trail, and acquired an injured ankle.

Local ambulance paramedic and police rescue personnel located the male and commenced treatment for a fractured ankle. Due to the remoteness and steep terrain of the location the Westpac Rescue Helicopter just before 3pm yesterday afternoon the Westpac Rescue Helicopter was tasked by Ambulance New South Wales to assist in the rescue.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter inserted via winch the Helicopter Critical Care Paramedic who assisted in treatment of the male. The man was then winched out from the scene and flown direct to the Lismore Base Hospital in a stable condition.
