RACQ LifeFlight Rescue airlifts injured bushwalker after fall

The Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue crew has airlifted a woman to hospital, after she slipped and fell, while bushwalking.

The helicopter was sent to the scene, north of Monto, around 1.15pm today.

The pilot landed the aircraft in a nearby clearing, before the aircrew officer and Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) flight paramedic walked in to the forest, to meet the patient.

The woman, aged in her sixties, was then carried out of the bushland by State Emergency Service (SES) and Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) personnel.

She was transferred into a QAS ambulance and driven to the waiting helicopter.

The patient was then flown to Bundaberg Hospital, with a lower limb injury.

She travelled in a stable condition.
