RACQ LifeFlight Rescue airlifts rider after motorbike crash

The Sunshine Coast’s RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a man, after he crashed his motorbike, while riding with friends.

The aeromedical crew was called to the scene, south-east of Gympie, just before 10am (Sunday 27 Sept).

It’s believed the rider lost control of the bike, after veering onto gravel.

The pilot landed the helicopter on a stretch of road, which had been closed off by Queensland Police Service (QPS) officers.

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Critical Care Doctor and Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) flight paramedic worked with other QAS paramedics at the scene, to treat the patient for hip and arm injuries.

The man, aged in his 60s, was then flown to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, in a stable condition.
