Boy burnt at coastal campsite

The Sunshine Coast based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has flown to Kin Kin, North West of Noosa Heads to retrieve an injured camper.

A 6 year old boy sustained suspected burns to his body after mentholated spirits were accidentally split into a camp fire.

Queensland Ambulance Services were first to attend to the young patient who was camping with his family at Harry's Hut in the Great Sandy National Park.

They then transported the patient to the Kin Kin oval to meet the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Helicopter which had landed at the oval. 

The boy was then loaded into the helicopter and transported to Brisbane's Lady Cilento Children's Hospital for further treatment.
