A climber fell from the rock in Blue Mountains

A 57-year-old Sydney resident embarked to the Blue Mountains with two his friends for climbing in some touristic sights. And yesterday in the morning he fell off from the rock. Before the midday rescuers came, there were policemen and doctors. The man has been successfully saved and taken to the hospital. He received some serious injures, mostly breaks.

Police inform that the operation was pretty complicated because of the weather conditions. The temperature reached only 4 degrees, so it was quite rude. The alpinists spent the night in the nearest cave.

The fallen man is in hospital and nothing threatens his life.
