  "Queensland Police Brisbane notified the RCC of a reported helicopter crash which they received via a 000 call. Intelligence checks revealed that VH-RMN R44 helicopter had crashed with 3 persons onboard near West Barney Peak in the McPherson Ranges west of Coolangatta with no reported injuries although the helicopter had rolled and was leaking fuel. The RCC tasked rescue helicopter Lifesaver 4 to respond who located the crashed helicopter on top of East Barney Peak on a ridge. Lifesaver 4 winched the 3 persons out in 2 trips to Woodenbong Oval where they were met by Police and a road Ambulance. They were confirmed by Ambulance personnel as having no injuries. The crashed pilot elected not to activate his ELT due to the potential risk from leaking fuel." (Source: 2)
