A long break between Helicopter Rescues
As per matagi below
From Tasmanian Police Facebook
A 29 year old Sydney woman had slipped and fallen three metres to the base of Ferguson’s Falls on the 20th April.
She was winched from the area with serious non life threatening injuries.
She was part of a guided walking group.

A 45 year old Devonport female was rescued when she fell approximately 8 metres landing in the pool at the base of Parsons Falls near Lake Mackenzie yesterday.
An off duty remote area nurse and other members of the public provided first aid.
Both Rescue Helicopters were used in the Rescue as a retrieval doctor was required. She was flown to Hobart with facial and other injuries
