A 12-year-old Goulburn boy is in a stable condition in a Sydney Hospital after injuring himself at Marsden Weir on Saturday.

A NSW Ambulance spokesman said the boy sustained suspected chest and rib injuries when he either jumped or fell off rocks while swimming at the Wollondilly River at about midday.

Paramedics attended the scene but he was airlifted to Westmead Children’s Hospital where he remained in a stable condition on Monday.

His parents, who did not wish to be named, thanked emergency services and the hospital staff for their care and attention.
