Man airlifted to hospital from Russell Island

It is understood the man was cutting a piece of plaster when other plaster boards fell and landed on his arm.

CareFlight’s medical team, including a Critical Care Doctor and Flight Intensive Care Paramedic, assessed and treated the patient’s injured arm.

He was flown to the Gold Coast University Hospital for further treatment in a stable condition.

The Gold Coast is one of four RACQ CareFlight Rescue bases servicing Queensland.
