CareFlight lands in cane field to save car crash victim

The Sunshine Coast-based RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to the scene of a single vehicle car accident at Maryborough this afternoon.

A man in his 20s reportedly crashed into a power pole and became entrapped in his vehicle for a period of time. Teams from the Queensland Ambulance Service and Queensland Fire and Emergency Services extricated the man from his vehicle.

The helicopter landed in a cane field near the incident with CareFlight’s critical care medical team on board.

The man was treated on-scene before being flown to Nambour General Hospital for further treatment for his limb and internal injuries.

He travelled in a stable condition.
