Man airlifted in critical condition after campdraft fall
A man has been airlifted in a critical condition with suspected head and spinal injuries after falling from his horse during a campdrafting event this morning.
The rider had been campdrafting at a property just south of Miles when the accident occurred.
The Toowoomba RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked just before 11am, landing at a sports oval at Miles.
QAS crews treated and transferred the patient to the oval and he was flown to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane by the CareFlight crew in a critical but stable condition.
It’s the third mission the RACQ CareFlight rescue crews have flown today.
The Sunshine Coast crew airlifted a man in his 20s from Murgon Hospital this morning with suspected head injuries after the car he was in rolled in a single vehicle accident earlier near Wondai.
In the early hours of this morning the Sunshine Coast crew airlifted a patient from Hervey Bay Hospital to Nambour Base Hospital for further treatment.
RACQ CareFlight crews, on average, treat and transfer more than three people a day, many with serious illnesses or injuries.
