NSW woman down mine 'lucky to be alive'”

New South Wales Police say a woman who was rescued yesterday after spending two days trapped in an abandoned mineshaft in the state's north-west is lucky to be alive.

A woman has been rescued from a mine shaft in the Lightning Ridge of New South Wales after she was discovered by a police drone.

There were serious concerns for her welfare as temperatures in the area exceeded 40 degrees.

She was located down the shaft on Sunday morning, after officers deployed drones as part of extensive search efforts, and spotted her on aerial footage.

She was taken to Lightning Ridge Hospital in a stable condition.

It's believed she tripped and fell into the mine shaft some time on Friday night, a police spokeswoman said on Monday.

They used a pulley and harness to swing down to the woman and provide her with water before bringing he to the surface.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers.
