Holiday comes to a crashing end

The Bundaberg RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a 51 year old woman, on holidays from Victoria, after she fell down a steep, rocky walking track on her way to Indian Head at Fraser Island. 

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was able to land around 200 metres from her location at the popular tourist destination.

The Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) Paramedic on board the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter treated the woman who sustained fractures to her lower right leg.

Bystanders then helped the crew carry the woman up the path, on a spine board stretcher, to the helicopter. 

The aeromedical crew transported her to the Bundaberg Base Hospital in a stable condition. 

2016-17 was a record year for LifeFlight for lifesaving missions with its aeromedical crews, community helicopters and Air Ambulance jets performing a record 5,252 missions throughout Queensland and around the world.

LifeFlight is a community-based charity that relies on donations from the public and community support to the LifeFlight Foundation.
