EARLIER:

A RESCUE operation is currently underway after emergency services responded to reports of someone falling 25 metres off Cedar Creek Falls.

A spokeswoman for Queensland Fire and Emergency Services said the call came in about 3.15pm with reports that someone had fallen at the waterfall.

Four crews of firefighters, including vertical rescue teams, were deployed to the rescue operation with more on the way.

The spokeswoman said the person had been located but the rescue was more difficult than at first anticipated.

A Queensland Ambulance spokesman said the patient was a woman in her teens who appeared to have sustained leg lacerations and head injuries.

The rescue was likely to be a protracted operation.

Because of the difficult terrain, the QAS spokesman said it was still being decided whether to send in a rescue helicopter or a virtual rescue crew.
