Motocross rider winched after accident, Murphy's Creek

The LifeFlight crew from the Sunshine Coast Base was tasked to a motocross park at Murphy's Creek North of Toowoomba Saturday afternoon at 2:30pm.

Once on scene the pilot recognised due to the terrain he would have to winch the medical team into the site where the motocross rider had fallen.

Both the Critical Care Doctor and Flight Paramedic along with QAS paramedics treated the rider for a broken lower leg.

He was then carefully put into a stretcher and winched into the aircraft, then transported to LifeFlight's Toowoomba Base where he was then road transported to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition.
