RACQ CareFlight airlifts three bike riders in two days

RACQ CareFlight Rescue has airlifted two bike riders injured in unrelated crashes this morning taking to three the number of patients in two days.

The Bundaberg aircraft was tasked to Manar Park motocross park just before 9.30 this morning.

A rider in his 40s had come off his bike the night before and had a suspected fracture to his right arm, injuries to his hip and wrist.

The patient was treated on scene by the QAS before being flown by the Bundaberg RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter to Bundaberg.

He travelled in a stable condition.

At the same time the Toowoomba crew returned to a dirt bike endurance event west of Chinchilla.

A man in his 20s had come off his bike and had a suspected leg fracture.

It’s the second time in two days that the helicopter has flown to the site.

Yesterday a man in his thirties was airlifted to hospital with a badly broken upper right arm.

The CareFlight crew commended both the paramedic on scene for the weekend event, and the QAS who had treated both patients each day before they were airlifted.

He was flown to the Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition.
