Emergency services in Margaret River were kept busy at the weekend as the region was flooded with tourists. Police and firefighters responded to a crash in Treeton on Sunday, November 27, joined State Emergency Service crews to find a missing 75-year-old woman on Saturday night and also aided in the rescue of a stuck hiker near the Boranup earlier that day. A teenage dirt bike rider was airlifted to hospital after he hit a tree near Jacka and Bell roads in Treeton about midday on Sunday. Initial reports suggest he suffered multiple fractures in the crash, including to his leg and arm. His age was not confirmed, but was believed to be between 18 or 19 years old. The RAC Rescue helicopter was called to the scene by Margaret River Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service firefighters a short time later, and the man was flown to hospital for emergency medical treatment in a stable condition. Wallcliffe Volunteer Bushfire Brigade rolled out on Saturday afternoon aiding police and local SES on the Cape-to-Cape Track. An SES spokesperson said the injured walker was found on a remote section near Connelly Cave. Margaret River St John Ambulance co-ordinated extraction by the RAC Rescue helicopter due to the challenging terrain. Also on Saturday night, all resources were thrown at an alert for a missing 75-year-old woman who was found within two hours of the first call. Emergency services personnel urged residents and travellers to prepare for the region’s terrain. Hikers were asked to carry water, sun protection and a personal location beacon if venturing into remote areas. The missing persons report sparked another call to register elderly loved ones with the Safe & Found app.
