Young camper flown to hospital by RACQ CareFlight Rescue

The Bundaberg-based RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter has flown to Como near the Noosa North Shore area to assist a 10-year-old male with possible abdominal injuries.

It’s understood the boy had been playing in the area when he fell into some shrubs and began complaining of abdominal pain. 

Family and friends who had been camping with the boy created a make-shift stretcher and carried him out of dense bushland. 

The boy was assessed on-site by CareFlight’s medical team.

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