Toowoomba man suffers multiple cardiac arrests

RACQ LifeFlight Rescue has airlifted a Toowoomba man in his 50s who suffered suspected multiple heart attacks last night.

The man had been holidaying at Rainbow Beach just south of Fraser Island, for his birthday when he suffered a series of cardiac arrests and required immediate medical assistance.

Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics were first on the scene to revive the patient.

The Sunshine Coast-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter crew was called to the scene at 10:27pm and landed on a nearby sports field, where they were met by paramedics.

The man was airlifted to the cardiac unit at the newly-opened Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
