German woman run over on Fraser Island beach

The Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter crew had a busy day today, flying an injured German woman from Fraser Island to Hervey Bay Hospital this afternoon soon after returning from a search for a missing trawler skipper.


The 20-year-old woman was transported to hospital in a stable condition with suspected hip, shoulder and leg injuries after being run over by a vehicle on the beach.

Earlier the helicopter searched for the second successive day for a man who went missing after his trawler rolled over at Indian Head off Fraser Island yesterday.
