About 1pm, Wednesday 2 January 2013, a 31-year-old woman and 32-year-old man were scaling a 35 metre cliff at Hornes Point on Mt Piddington when the man slipped off the cliff.

He fell 18 metres to the base of the cliff and sustained a compound fracture to his ankle and a fractured leg.

During the incident the woman was pulled from

her position and fell 12 metres to the ground where she sustained numerous fractures; head and internal injuries.

A number of other climbers came to their aid before emergency services were contacted.

Officers from the Police Rescue Squad and the Ambulance Rescue Helicopter attended the scene with doctors and paramedics being winched in to treat the injured pair.

They were airlifted to Westmead Hospital where the woman is believed to be in a critical condition while the man is in a stable condition and undergoing surgery.

A crime scene was established at the cliff and examined by specialist forensic officers.

Investigations into the circumstances surrounding the incident are continuing with police waiting to speak to the injured climbers.
