Holidaymaker airlifted from Fraser Island

The Bundaberg-based RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a holidaymaker from Fraser Island after he suffered chest pains.

The crew was tasked just after 4am this morning but had to wait for fog to clear before landing at Happy Valley around 5am.

The 45 year old Caboolture man was then taken to Hervey Bay Hospital in a stable condition.

It’s understood the man had planned to celebrate New Year’s Eve on the Island.
