CareFlight airlifts woman from rural property

The Sunshine Coast RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter has flown to a private property at Gunalda, north-west of Gympie, this morning to assist in the treatment and retrieval of a seriously ill woman.

It is believed the patient in her 40s succumbed to a serious medical condition earlier in the morning.

Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics treated the patient on scene, before the Maroochydore-based chopper was called for an urgent airlift shortly after 11am.

The CareFlight medical team ushered the patient to Nambour General Hospital for further treatment. She travelled in a stable condition.
