RACQ LifeFlight Rescue airlifts diver off Lady Elliot

The Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to Lady Elliot Island at 11:26am to attend to a holiday maker suffering from a suspected cardiac condition.

A 69 year old male was diving off the coastline with a private charter when he began to suffer from a suspected cardiac condition.

Two doctors were on board the vessel at the time of the incident and treated the man while the boat returned to shore.

The man was loaded into the rescue helicopter before being flown to Bundaberg Hospital in a stable condition.
