Three airlifted from Stanthorpe in one day

The Brisbane-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter airlifted three patients from Stanthorpe Hospital yesterday in separate, but unrelated incidents.

Two patients - a woman and a man - were airlifted by RACQ LifeFlight Rescue following unrelated traffic accidents. 

A woman in her 70s was airlifted with suspected internal injuries following a motor vehicle accident.

A man, also in his 70s, was airlifted after he sustained multi-trauma injuries to his upper limbs, including his face, while riding his bicycle.

Both patients were airlifted to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane.

A third patient was airlifted from Stanthorpe Hospital to Brisbane with a cardiac 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 funded and supported by the LifeFlight Foundation
