 LifeFlight’s Roma-based Surat Gas Aeromedical Service (SGAS) helicopter airlifted a woman after a snake bite in the Central Highlands Region.

It is believed the woman stood on the snake before she was bitten. 

The patient was treated at the scene by Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics and the aeromedical crew. 

The woman was flown to Roma hospital in a stable condition.
