LifeFlight’s Roma-based Surat Gas Aeromedical Service (SGAS) rescue helicopter has airlifted a boy after he was involved in a motorbike crash, on a private property, in the Banana region.

The rescue helicopter was called to the scene just before 2pm today (Sunday 16 February).

It’s believed the young boy, who is primary school aged, was riding with a friend when he lost control and crashed the bike, being thrown over the handlebars.

Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics treated the patient at the scene and drove him a short distance, to where the rescue helicopter was waiting.

The boy was airlifted to Roma Airport, under the care of an RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Critical Care Doctor and a LifeFlight Critical Care Paramedic.

He was transported in a stable condition.
