Tenth mission flown to Gap Creek Motocross Park
RACQ LifeFlight Rescue flew its tenth rescue mission to Gap Creek Motocross Park in less than twelve months to airlift an injured rider earlier today.
The Toowoomba-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter airlifted a teenage boy after he fell approximately 20 metres from a jump while off-road motorbiking at Gap Creek Farm, a popular motorbike track outside Cunningham's Gap.
He was airlifted to the Princess Alexander Hospital in Brisbane in a serious condition, suffering suspected spinal and chest injuries.
Back to back off-road motorcycle accidents were attended by the Toowoomba-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter today.
Earlier this morning at approximately 11am the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter airlifted a seven year old boy who was off-road motorbiking at a campground west of Warwick.
The young boy was airlifted to the Gold Coast University Hospital with a suspected fractured arm.
He was accompanied by his mother and father and transported in a stable condition.
