An off-duty nurse has come to the rescue of a woman who was hit by a cyclist while crossing a road in Camperdown this morning.

A spokesperson for NSW Ambulance said the nurse stopped to help the injured 30-year-old woman at 7:30am on Parramatta Road when a male cyclist collided with her.

Both were rushed to hospital, with the woman in a critical condition. The cyclist, however, is in a stable condition.

According to NSW Ambulance, another woman was treated for minor injuries.

Inspector John Williams has praised the nurse’s quick thinking, stating that her “highly commended” efforts made an “immense difference”.

Westbound lanes on Parramatta were closed after the incident, but re-opened shortly after.


Officers are appealing for those with dashcam or CCTV footage to get in contact.
