Teenager rescued after falling off Florence Falls in Litchfield National Park in Northern Territory

An injured teenager has been rescued after falling off a cliff at a national park in the Northern Territory.

The 17-year-old was stranded about ten metres from the top of Florence Falls in Litchfield National Park, Northern Territory police said on Thursday.

He was rescued by emergency service volunteers who hauled him to the top of the waterfall using ropes.

The boy was stranded 10 metres below the top of the Florence Falls before he was rescued by emergency services

The teen suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was flown to Royal Darwin Hospital in a rescue helicopter.

The crocodile-free Florence Falls is a popular swimming spot for tourists and locals in Litchfield National Park, about 100km southwest of Darwin.

Youths are often seen climbing to the top of cliffs and jumping into the waterhole about 20 metres below.
