A young motorbike rider has ended up 20 metres down an embankment and another rider has lost part of their finger in separate accidents at Kembla Heights.
Emergency services were called to two incidents in the area within the space of just 10 minutes on Sunday afternoon.
A NSW Ambulance spokesman said four ambulance units responded to reports a 12-year-old boy had been involved in a single-motorbike accident at the Wollongong Motorcycle Club, off Harry Graham Drive.
The spokesman said the boy sustained an injury to the left side of his face and was complaining of lower leg pain, but “his vitals were good”.
“[He] appears to have lost control of the bike and drove off a cliff,” he said.
It is understood the boy ended up about 20 metres down an embankment.
He was taken to Wollongong Hospital for treatment.
Only minutes earlier, about 12.35pm, paramedics were called to another motorbike accident in the same area.
In that incident, a 26-year-old man lost part of a finger after falling off his bike. He was also taken to Wollongong Hospital.
