Firefighter injured

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter was tasked to Wilsons Downfall State Forest north of Tenterfield on Sunday afternoon to a 24-year-old firefighter that had fallen approximately two metres and received serious lower leg injuries.

Due to the difficult terrain and remoteness of the location the helicopter's Critical Care Medical Team were winch-inserted into the location.

The man was treated and stabilised on scene before being stretcher-winched from the location and flown directly to the Lismore Base Hospital in a stable condition.
