A MAN broke both legs after hitting rocks when jumping at The Pillars, Mount Martha, on Boxing Day (Saturday 26 December).

A specialist high-angle ropes team from Fire Rescue Victoria was called in to winch the 31-year-old Northcote man up the cliff face about 5.20pm. He was taken by ambulance to Frankston Hospital with “non-life threatening injuries”.

Somerville detectives said the Esplanade was closed for three hours in both directions while the rescue took place.
