Woman winched to safety after injuring leg at Deep Creek

A multi-agency operation saw an injured hiker to safety at Deep Creek Conservation Park on Wednesday, July 29.

Just before 11.30am, emergency services were called to the Blowhole Beach track where a woman had hurt her leg and could not walk.

According to a State Emergency Service (SES) spokesman, she had made phone contact with SA Ambulance (SAAS) to alert them to her situation.

"Once SAAS reached her, they found the track was too narrow to walk out of," he said.

"It was a good half-hour before they got to her because of the location, but they were in constant phone contact."

SAAS crews and Special Operations team, the SES, Country Fire Service, Metropolitan Fire Service, and SA Police all attended to help get the woman to safety, and she was eventually winched out via the State Rescue helicopter.

She was flown to Flinders Medical Centre in a stable condition and was treated for a fractured leg.

SAAS shared a video of part of the rescue taking place - see below.
