Rock Fisherman Injured At Catherine Hill Bay
He's been airlifted to the John Hunter.
A rock fisherman has been involved in a nasty accident in Catherine Hill Bay this afternoon.
The Westpac Rescue Helicopter was called around midday after a passing boat contacted emergency crews after spotting a man waving for help from the rocks.
A 71-year-old was treated for a suspected fractured leg before being flown to the John Hunter Hospital in a stable condition.
Paramedics say he'd first cast out at 7am, and spent around five hours before receiving help.
