A woman fell 25ft from a sea cliff onto the beach below.
She was attempting to climb down the cliff face at Pakefield, near to Pontins holiday park, when she fell on Sunday.
The Lowestoft and Southwold HM Coastguard team were paged by Humber Coastguard Operations Centre at 3.13pm.
On arriving at the scene, the incident was found to have happened 100m south of Pakefield Coastwatch.
Both the team and the ambulance service assisted in stabilising the casualty, who was suffering from a suspected spinal condition.
She was strapped up and carried off in a basket stretcher before being transported to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston for further treatment.
A spokesman from HM Coastguard said: “Once again we remind people that the cliffs are not safe and do not attempt to climb down or up them.”
