Rescue chopper makes beach landing to rescue injured 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.
