Cyclist rescued from bush on Bulli Pass after accident this morning

NSW Ambulance Toll Group Helicoper

Fire and Rescue NSW crews from Bulli and Wollongong worked with Ambulance NSW to gain access to a 22 year old cyclist who fell from his bike while riding in the bush, about 10 minutes walk from the ‘elbow’ on Bulli Pass about 9.45am today.

A NSW Fire and Rescue spokesperson said the man could not be accessed by a vehicle, and crews needed a single wheeled stretcher to transport the patient to safety.

The man, according to reports, was consciousness during the incident, and now has been rescued.

The area, known as ‘The Bulli Down Hill’ has become popular with cyclists in recent years.
