Two people have been rescued from a hillside near Forsyth after falling from a scenic overlook off Highway Y.

Rescue teams took both victims by boat to a helicopter pad to be treated, and one was airlifted to a local hospital.

Both have apparent serious injuries.

A third person also fell down the bluff, but walked back up.

Fire crews say the sightseers crossed over the guardrail to get a better look and lost their footing.
