    Rescue for man with Outward Bound

    A man tramping with an Outward Bound group on a ridge in the Marlborough Sounds has been taken to hospital after a fall.


    A man has been rescued in the Marlbourgh Sounds after falling while tramping with an Outward Bound group.

    The 22-year-old Wellington man slipped and fell while ascending the high tops above Kaiuma Saddle near Nydia Bay shortly before 1pm on Sunday, says the Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter.

    He was initially treated by the group leaders who then called for help.

    The rescue helicopter winched the on-board medic down to the group in dense bush high on the ridgeline.

    The injured man was winched on-board the helicopter and flown to Wairau Hospital for further care.

    Outward Bound New Zealand is located at Anakiwa on the shores of Queen Charlotte Sound.

    Separately on Saturday, the Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter also used a winch to rescue a 32-year-old Wellington man who had fallen on the isolated Mt Stokes track in the outer Marlborough Sound and also a 67-year-old Wellington man who fell from rocks in remote Titirangi Bay.
