AAP logoAAP 28/03/2017


A woman has been rescued after she fell down a South Australian cliff face while walking with her dog, who ran back to her husband and led him to her.

The 55-year-old woman was walking with the red heeler at Gleesons Landing on the Yorke Peninsula on Monday afternoon when she tripped, fell at least three metres down a sandy cliff face and fractured her leg, police say.

The dog ran back to the camp where the woman's husband was waiting and led him to the spot where she had fallen several hundred metres away.

The woman was airlifted to the Royal Adelaide Hospital in a stable condition.
