RACQ LifeFlight Rescue joins the search for missing boatie

It comes after the Queensland Police Service tasked the Sunshine Coast-based helicopter on a search mission for a missing boatie early this morning. 

The aeromedical crew scouted areas across the Wide Bay; including Fraser Island and Lady Elliot Island. 

While the crew were unable to locate the vessel the man on board the vessel later made contact with his family. 

The 2017-2018 financial year was a record year for LifeFlight for lifesaving missions with its aeromedical crews, community helicopters and Air Ambulance jets performing a record 5,452 missions throughout Queensland and around the world.

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