Dramatic Rescue in Lake Macquarie

A dirt bike rider has been winched to safety following a serious accident in Mandalong.

The 45-year-old crashed in remote bushland before he was flung into tree and suffering serious chest injuries just before midday.

A critical care team had to be winched 150m into the area as paramedics on the ground were unable to gain access.

The rider was stabilised and airlifted to the John Hunter Hospital in a stable condition.
