Back to back missions for Bundaberg chopper

The Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter completed back to back rescue missions to Fraser Island overnight, airlifting a man in his late 20s and a two-year-old boy.

The first mission flown by the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was to Happy Valley at around 10.30pm last night after a man fell from a balcony and suffered suspected multi-trauma injuries. 

The Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue airlifted the man to Hervey Bay Hospital in a stable condition.

The helicopter was then immediately re-tasked to the Orchid Beach area to airlift a two-year-old Rockhampton boy who was suffering breathing difficulties.

The young boy was accompanied by his father and airlifted to Bundaberg Hospital in a stable condition.
