A man has been rescued after a falling from a cliff at North Curl Curl this afternoon, 3 October. Just after 12pm, paramedics responded to reports a man had fallen around 8 metres off a cliff near Molong Street, North Curl Curl. Revised reports picked the fall at about five metres, but landing on his back.
Four crews including Special Operation Paramedics and the Toll Ambulance Rescue Helicopter including a critical care doctor and critical care paramedic were dispatched to the scene.
NSW Ambulance Inspector David Lambert said the man, in his forties, fell about eight metre off a cliff near Molong Street, North Curl Curl.
“After the man fell, he spent a significant period of time crawling over difficult terrain to get suitable reception to call Triple Zero (000) for help.”
“Special Operations Paramedics and NSW Fire and Rescue accessed the patient initially by abseiling down the cliff face.”
“Due to the difficult access, we made the decision to winch the patient to safety with the assistance of the Toll Ambulance Rescue Helicopter.”
“It’s remarkable he didn’t sustain any life-threatening injuries.”
The man, in his forties, was successfully rescued and airlifted to Royal North Shore Hospital for checks.
