Woman airlifted after bush walking fall

The Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to Cania Gorge, north west of Monto, after an elderly lady slipped and fell while bush walking, earlier today.

The helicopter landed at a nearby paddock, and the Critical Care Flight Paramedic walked in with other emergency services to treat the patient.

The Queensland Fire Emergency Service (QFES), the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) and the Queensland Police Service (QPS) all assisted in carrying the woman out, roughly one kilometre to where the chopper was waiting.

The patient suffered a shoulder injury and was airlifted to the Bundaberg Hospital in a stable condition.
