RACQ LifeFlight Rescue airlifts two teenagers after motocross crashes

The Sunshine Coast RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted two injured teenagers to hospital, after separate motorbike crashes, at a motocross park, earlier today.

The rescue chopper was sent to the scene, in the South Burnett, shortly after 1pm.

The aeromedical team worked alongside paramedics from the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS), to stabilise the pair for their flight to hospital.

The patients – one female and one male – had suffered upper body injuries and were flown in a stable condition to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

RACQ LifeFlight Rescue has now airlifted seven people, who have been injured in separate motorbike crashes, since the beginning of the school holidays.
