Teen rescued from rocks at Yamba

EMERGENCY services crews have rescued a teenager trapped in rocks near Turners Beach, Yamba.

Police, paramedics, the SES and a helicopter attended the scene.

It is believed the 13-year-old from the Gold Coast had been in the water and was washed into the rocks by a big wave.

He has possibly suffered a broken ankle and was unable to walk, so took shelter in a small cave.
