Rescue chopper makes beach landing to rescue injured rider
The Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has made a sandy landing on a Fraser Island beach, to pick up an injured motorbike rider.
It's believed the young male fell off his motorcycle, while riding on one of the island's northern beaches.
The aeromedical team was called to the coastline around 3:45pm, this afternoon (Thursday August 15).
Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics were also tasked.
Once the helicopter landed, the LifeFlight QAS Flight Paramedic treated the patient for injuries to his lower right leg.
The rescue helicopter then flew him to Bundaberg Hospital in a stable condition.
