ACT Fire & Rescue and ACT Paramedics have rescued a boy who fell at Mt Ainslie.

The boy and his family are in Canberra from Victoria on holiday.

The boy was going down Mt Ainslie and slipped, falling 50 to 60 metres.

Firefighters and Paramedics worked together to get the boy on to a stretcher, ropes were attached and he was pulled up to the top where the ambulance was.

He has facial injuries and has been taken to The Canberra Hospital in a stable condition.
