SES crews rescue two people in the Grampians

Stawell SES is urging walkers in the Grampians National Park to be cautious after attending two rescues on Monday afternoon.

Crews were called to the Wonderland Track at about 2pm to assist a 70-year-old man who had slipped, injuring his knee and back.

A short time later crews were called back to the area to rescue a 35-year-old woman who had fallen injuring her leg at McKenzie Falls.

Both the man and woman were taken to hospital for observation.
