Man injured after hammock mishap

A man in his early 50s has been airlifted by the Sunshine Coast-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter after he fell off his hammock and dislocated his hip early this morning.

The man was holidaying at Bewer on Moreton Island when the incident occurred.

RACQ LifeFlight Rescue was tasked to the mission just after 4.30am.

Crews treated the man at the scene before airlifting him to the Royal Brisbane Women's Hospital in a stable condition.

The Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was also kept busy, attending a motor-vehicle accident in the South Burnett region. 

A woman was airlifted to Bundaberg Hospital after she was involved in a single-vehicle rollover outside of Biggenden last night.

2016-17 was a record year for LifeFlight for lifesaving missions with its aeromedical crews, community helicopters and Air Ambulance jets performing a record 5,342 missions throughout Queensland and around the world.
