Home maintenance job leaves man seriously injured

The Brisbane-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has transported a 60-year-old man after he fell almost three metres.

It's believed the man was working on his home in Moreton Bay when the accident occurred.

The aeromedical crew worked alongside paramedics from the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) to stabilise the man before flying him to the Princess Alexandra Hospital. 

He was transported in a stable condition. 

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.

LifeFlight is a community-based charity funded and supported by the LifeFlight Foundation
