Patient airlifted off Moreton Island

The Sunshine Coast-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to the Kooringal landing pad, located on the southern tip of Moreton Island at 2:37 PM this afternoon.

A female in her early '60's' suffering from suspected abdominal pain was airlifted off the island to Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition. 

Queensland Ambulance Service Paramedics were unable to retrieve and transport the patient due to the rising 2-metre tides which cut off access roads.
