Bushwalker airlifted from remote national park

The man had been on the second day of a two-day trek with a group of fellow walkers when he succumbed to the extremely painful condition and could no longer stand.

“He was in a lot of pain, but was in good spirits.”

CareFlight’s Intensive Care Flight Paramedic treated the man on-scene before transferring him to Nambour General Hospital in a stable condition.

Last year, RACQ CareFlight Rescue performed 250 missions on the Sunshine Coast and in the surrounding areas, providing immediate aeromedical care for seriously injured or ill patients.
