Emer­gency ser­vices were called to help a 74-year-old wo­man who suf­fered a med­i­cal event while walk­ing on the Grave­yard Gully track, near Alexan­dra on Tues­day at 3pm. Se­nior Sergeant Ian Ker­risk said the track ran down the side of the Clutha River and given the dif­fi­cult lo­ca­tion, Coast­guard were called to take ex­tra staff down to the area by the river, and trans­port the pa­tient and med­i­cal staff back to Alexan­dra. The pa­tient, a vis­i­tor to Alexan­dra, is re­ceiv­ing med­i­cal care.’’
