A spokesperson for the helicopter rescue service said the woman was descending down the mountain when her foot got wedged and she heard a "pop” in her foot.

The spokesperson said she was unable to continue with her descent.

"The rescue crew officer and paramedic were winched to the patient on the side of the mountain where the patient was treated and stabilised before being winched back into the rescue helicopter,” the spokesperson said.
