Couple in their 60s get into difficulty on bushwalk in Upper Mountains

A couple in their 60s from western Sydney required the assistance of emergency services on Thursday afternoon when they embarked on a bushwalk in hot conditions to Leura forest.

At 2pm, the couple’s daughter had called police after receiving a call from her parents, said Blue Mountains Police Inspector Scott McAlpine.

He said the woman had been feeling sick and was in pain from a pre-existing ankle injury.

The couple managed to walk to an area accessible by 4WD where they met police and paramedics and were driven out of the area.
