Young boy airlifted after near-drowning at 1770

The Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a three-year-old boy after he nearly drowned at a campsite at 1770 earlier this afternoon. 

The boy was holidaying with his family at the time when he slipped on some rocks and fell into the water.

It is believed he was submerged under the water for just under one minute.

Crews treated him at the scene before airlifting him to the Bundaberg Base Hospital in a stable condition for treatment and observation.

2016-17 was a record year for LifeFlight for lifesaving missions with its aeromedical crews, community helicopters and Air Ambulance jets performing a record 5,342 missions throughout Queensland and around the world.
