2EC reports: A man has been airlifted to Canberra Hospital in a serious condition after being washed off the rocks south of Batemans Bay this morning (Thursday April 14). Emergency Services received reports after 8am today of a man who was laying on the rocks at Mosquito Bay, near Malua Bay. The man in his 60's had potentially been there for several hours before he was able to raise help according to emergency services. NSW Ambulance responded sending three vehicles to scene along with a rescue chopper. Police, Fire and Rescue and SES crews were all on site. Due to the location of the man it was difficult for first-responders to get to him, with rescue teams having to winch a paramedic and doctor down to the patient. The man sustained serious injuries to his chest and a puncture to his left flank.
