BOY TAKEN TO JOHN HUNTER WITH SERIOUS INJURIES

A 17-year-old boy has been taken to John Hunter Hospital with serious facial injuries, after falling off a cliff at Glenrock this afternoon.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter was called to the conservation area just before 2.30pm, and a paramedic and a doctor were winched down to him.

It’s believed the boy fell near a waterfall.

More information to come.
