Burlington firefighters had to effect a high-angle rope rescue of a woman in her 20s after she had fallen off a cliff at Mount Nemo this afternoon.
Although an Ornge helicopter was initially called to the scene, the order was later cancelled.
After rescuers reached the woman, she was placed in a stokes basket and then hauled up the side of the escarpment by a team of firefighters.
Once raised to the top, Halton EMS paramedics assessed the woman’s condition before preparing her to be transported by ambulance.
She was taken to Joseph Brant Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries
