Freak solar panel accident causes injury

A middle-aged man has been airlifted by the Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter following a freak accident involving a solar panel at a property north of Gin Gin last night. 

The man sustained serious injuries after he hit his head against the solar panel.

He was airlifted to Bundaberg Hospital in a serious condition. 

On completion of the mission, the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue chopper was immediately retasked to Fraser Island to airlift a baby for medical assistance.

The baby was accompanied by his mother and airlifted to Hervey Bay Hospital for further treatment.

2017 was a record year for LifeFlight for lifesaving missions with its aeromedical crews, community helicopters and Air Ambulance jets performing a record 5,344 missions throughout Queensland and around the world.
