Karijini gorge rescue
Emergency services performed a vertical rescue to free an injured man from a gorge in Karijini National Park last Tuesday.
Shortly before 10am, the 60-year-old tourist from New South Wales was walking on the designated path into Joffre Gorge with his wife when he slipped and fell about 6m.
Tom Price police, local SES volunteers, Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions rangers and St John Ambulance officers went to the scene. The SES used ropes to go down into the gorge to rescue the man after his injuries were deemed too serious for him to be carried out.
He was taken to Tom Price Hospital with a serious knee injury.
The incident is believed to be the eighth significant rescue in Karijini so far this year.
