Man airlifted after Fraser roof fall

The RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter has flown to Orchid Beach on Fraser Island this afternoon to airlift a man in his 70s who fell several metres off a roof.

The Sunshine Coast-based helicopter landed on the island and the elderly man was treated for suspected spinal injuries by CareFlight’s Doctor and Intensive Care Paramedic on-scene.

He was then airlifted to Nambour General Hospital in a stable condition.
