The woman sustained extensive bruising and suspected fractures. State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers, four paramedics and five firefighters walked approximately one kilometre and manoeuvred down a cliff approximately 30 to 40 metres to locate the woman.

The woman was winched out of the area by the AGL Rescue Helicopter and airlifted to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital. Her condition is unknown.
