RACQ LifeFlight Rescue airlifts woman injured in aerial workout fall

The Sunshine Coast RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a woman to hospital, after she was reportedly injured during an exercise routine this afternoon (Wednesday 9th December).

The rescue chopper was called to a private property, in the Gympie region, just before 6pm.

It’s believed the patient had been using aerial silks, when the fabric became separated from the beam it was tied to and she fell approximately five metres, to the ground.

Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics were on the scene, when the aeromedical team arrived.

The woman, aged in her 30s, suffered suspected spinal injuries and was flown to Princess Alexandra Hospital, in a stable condition.
