Anyone travelling between Nimbin and Blue Knob last Friday evening would have been surprised to see the road blocked by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
The Rescue chopper was tasked just before 5pm after a report of a serious motorbike accident on the outskirts of Nimbin at Blue Knob with the rider suffering serious injuries.
Rescue vehicles blocked the road to the north and south as NSW Ambulance Paramedics and the Helicopter Critical Care Medical Team landed on Blue Knob Road Near the intersection with Cemetery Road bout a kilometre north of Nimbin.
They treated and stabilised a 30 year old male rider who came off his bike after he collided with a rock wall and was thrown some distance.
The man was placed in a medical induced coma and airlifted direct to GCUH with multiple injuries in a critical condition for further treatment.
