29/09/2021 – Another Bluff Knoll Rescue

SES STRETCHERS WOMAN OFF BLUFF KNOLL 

 
State Emergency Service  Volunteers had to stretcher a woman from the summit of Bluff Knoll after she suffered an ankle injury Tuesday afternoon.
 
A triple zero call was made just after 2pm on Tuesday.
Bad weather prevented the rescue helicopter from winching the victim from the summit, leaving SES volunteers to make the climb to the top of the 1099m summit.
 
“It’s a long haul up there,” Gnowangerup SES’s Les Nayda told ABC Great Southern radio.  “There’s no way she could’ve got down on her own.”
 
Greg Cook SESVA President said “Another example of the outstanding work done by SES Volunteers in Western Australia”.
