Rescue operation on Central Coast

Update: The girl has been airlifted from the site at approximately 12.30pm today and has been taken to Westmead Children’s Hospital in a stable condition.

Police, NSW Ambulance and Fire and Rescue NSW are today working to rescue a teenage bushwalker injured on the Central Coast.

The 15-year-old girl was on a school camping trip in the Brisbane Water National Park at Wondabyne and suffered a possible neck injury during a bush walk just after 1pm on Sunday, February 25.

Emergency services tracked into the national park yesterday, with the girl treated on scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics who stayed with her overnight.

She is in a stable condition.

The inclement weather is today hampering operations to extract the girl from the national park, with no road access to the site and difficult conditions for an air extraction.

A command post has been established at Kariong with Brisbane Water Police District officers co-ordinating the rescue effort.
