An injured hiker who fell 10 meters on a cliff in Southern Downs and spent the night with rescue workers was finally brought to safety on Sunday.
The 20-year-old man hiked Mount Superbus just before 11am, 44 kilometers east of Warwick in the Main Range National Park. He fell at 30 o’clock on Saturday.
A rescue helicopter spotted him from the air before paramedics and other emergency services reached him on foot, a Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said.
Because of the rough terrain, the ground teams had to spend the night with the man who had injured his lower body before the helicopter returned on Sunday morning.
The RACQ LifeFlight helicopter then flew the man to Toowoomba Hospital, said an ambulance spokeswoman.
