An elderly man is helped into an ambulance by firefighters yesterday after falling on a walking track in Dunedin.

Firefighters with a Stokes basket were deployed to the entrance of the Leith Saddle Track, along with an ambulance, after reports the man had fallen and hit his head.

He was able to walk to the waiting ambulance, assisted by several Fire and Emergency New Zealand crew, at the entrance of the track near the intersection of Leith Valley Rd and the Northern Motorway.

St John recorded his condition as moderate, although he appeared conscious and in good spirits when helped into the ambulance and taken to Dunedin Hospital.
