Woman hurt in dive from cliff onto rocks

AN 18-year-old woman was taken to Princess Alexandra Hospital in a neck brace last night after an accident at Green Lakes in Collingwood Park.

The woman was swimming with a group of friends at 5.20pm at a popular spot and attempted to jump from a five-to-seven-metre cliff into the water.

The woman landed on rocks at the bottom of the cliff and sustained a neck injury.

The Queensland Ambulance Service attended and she was winched to safety and taken to hospital.

The woman was conscious through the ordeal and her injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.
