Three missions in three hours for the Sunshine Coast region

The Sunshine Coast RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has winched an injured hiker off Mt Coolum, after she fell and suffered upper body injuries.  

The aeromedical crew was sent to the mountain around 9:30 this morning. 

The woman, aged in her fifties, was transported in a stable condition to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital. 

The helicopter was then tasked to the Sunshine Coast hinterland, where a man, aged in fifties, had lost control of his motorbike bike and smashed into a tree. 

The aeromedical crew worked alongside paramedics from the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) to stabilise the rider, before flying him to hospital. 

He suffered multiple injuries and was transported in a serious condition to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital. 

Meanwhile, the Brisbane RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked further inland, to airlift a man, aged in his sixties. 

It's believed he was run over by a vehicle, while he was moving stock on his property.

He was transported in a stable condition to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital for further treatment.
