A PolAir helicopter has winched a girl to safety from the Nepean River after she fell out of her kayak at the weekend.

The crew of PolAir 2 were called to the Nepean River at Emu Plains about 5pm on Saturday (28 August 2021) following reports a teenage girl was in trouble in the water.

Police have been told the 15-year-old had been kayaking with her father when she fell into the water. Her father was unable to reach her and called police.

The crew found the girl clinging to a tree in the water before an officer was lowered to her and she was winched to safety.

The girl was flown to a waiting NSW Ambulance a short distance away and assessed by paramedics. She was uninjured.

Her father joined them at the location and was reunited with his daughter.
