Two injured Australian climbers have been rescued from Mt Cook in New Zealand.
The pair, aged 36 and 37, were hit by falling ice and fell about 200m about 1am local time on Saturday, police say.
One climber received facial injuries, while the other suffered chest injuries, making it difficult to breathe.
The climbers made it to Plateau Hut, where they raised the alarm.
A rescue team was able to fly in by helicopter at first light.
The climbers have been taken to Timaru Hospital.
Their injuries are not life threatening.
