A young girl was rescued uninjured after falling down a cliff on Palm Beach on October 2. A Fire and Emergency NZ spokesman said the girl had been climbing on the cliff when she fell and landed on a ledge.the organisation received the call just after 3.20pm on Monday. Four fire tenders carrying crews were quickly at the scene. Police and paramedics were also alerted to the incident. A firefighter was winched down to the girl, while two others climbed down the cliff. Two of them held her securely while a third put a ladder up from the beach. The girl was reunited with her grandmother, who had been rescued herself earlier after climbing to reach her granddaughter. Neither suffered any injuries. Station officer Chris Freeman described the girl, believed to be around six years old, as ‘‘very brave’’. Senior firefighter Rob Smith said the brigade had a line rescue team which had been training for just such an incident. He said it had taken around an hour to effect the rescue but it was policy to take things slowly.
