The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter battled strong winds on Saturday afternoon to airlift a man to Newcastle.

Around 3:15pm the Tamworth based helicopter was called to Kremnos, west of Woolgoolga following reports of a cliff fall.

On arrival, a 51 year old man had been recovered by SES and emergency services after falling about 16 metres down a cliff face.

The man was treated at the scene for chest and pelvic injuries as well as abrasions. 

He was then flown to Newcastle’s John Hunter for further treatment.
