Teen hospitalised after falling from cliff on Sunshine Coast

A 14-year-old boy has been rescued after falling from a cliff at Moffat Beach on the Sunshine Coast.

Emergency services rushed to the scene just before 10.30am, after receiving reports a boy had slipped and fallen off the headland.

Queensland Ambulance Service Senior Operations Supervisor Shane Kropp said bystanders assisted emergency crews in rescuing the teen, who miraculously was in a stable condition.

The boy was then treated by paramedics before being taken to Sunshine Coast University Hospital with facial injuries.

The incident has prompted authorities to issue a warning to people about safety around cliffs, especially during the school holidays.

“People need to be mindful that cliffs can be slippery and dangerous at the top,” Mr Kropp said.

“Always be aware and stay behind barriers.

“Accidents like this can happen so quickly, before you know it you could be over the edge.”
