Injured hiker winched from national park

A woman, aged in her forties, is recovering in hospital after she was injured while hiking yesterday afternoon. 

LifeFlight's Roma-based Surat Gas Aeromedical Service helicopter was called to the gorge, north of Roma, shortly after 3pm (August 13). 

Due to the difficult terrain, making it challenging for emergency crews to reach her on the ground, the aeromedical crew performed a winch rescue. 

She suffered lower limb injuries and was flown to Roma Hospital in a stable condition.
