Busy end to weekend for RACQ LifeFlight Rescue crews

RACQ LifeFlight Rescue crews have been kept busy over the weekend, performing a total of 15 missions since Friday night.

This included two motor-vehicle accidents on Saturday which were attended by the Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba RACQ LifeFlight Rescue crews. 

The Sunshine Coast-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter airlifted a person after they fell from their vehicle in Noosa Heads on Saturday morning. 

RACQ LifeFlight Rescue received the call just after 5am and airlifted the patient to Brisbane. 

The Toowoomba-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue also attended a two-vehicle accident in the Somerset region, airlifting a middle-aged woman with serious injuries to a Brisbane hospital. 

13 inter-hospital transfers were also completed by rescue crews, including the transfer of a male in his late 20s who had been injured in a dirt-bike accident near Kingaroy on Saturday afternoon. 

2017 was a record year for LifeFlight for lifesaving missions with its aeromedical crews, community helicopters and Air Ambulance jets performing a record 5,344 missions throughout Queensland and around the world.
