Just before 9 am today, Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) received a request to assist with the search and rescue of an injured bike rider.
Following an extensive search, which included members of the public remaining in contact with Triple Zero (000) operators as a rescue helicopter flew overhead, the injured man was located.
Crews walked over three kilometres through very thick scrub to get to the man. Once he was secured into an inflatable boat, he was carefully floated down a creek to an awaiting ambulance and conveyed to hospital.
