Two people are believed to have BASE jumped at Ellenborugh Falls.
On Sunday, May 19 the Westpac Rescue Helicopter was called to Ellenborough Falls, near Elands, to reports of a hang glider/para glider stuck in trees.
However the mission was called off and the helicopter returned to the Tamworth base.
The service said after locating a parachute at the bottom of the falls it had been confirmed that two persons had BASE jumped from the top and had left one of their chutes behind in their haste to leave the area.
BASE jumping - standing for Building, Antenna, Span and Earth (cliff) - is banned in Australia.
This was the second emergency call the rescue helicopter service received to the Manning over the weekend.
Overnight Saturday, May 18 the rescue helicopter attended a motorcycle accident at Wingham. A 40 year old man sustained multiple injuries and was transported to John Hunter Hospital in a serious condition.
