The Bundaberg-based RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to Eurong on Fraser Island at 7am today.
CareFlight’s crew assessed the 17-year-old boy for a suspected shoulder injury.
The teenager told the crew he and a friend were helping a tourist replace the back right wheel on a four-wheel drive yesterday afternoon when two car jacks gave way.
“He’s in some pain, but is in a stable condition.”
The boy was airlifted to Hervey Bay Hospital for urgent treatment to his injured shoulder.
He was on the island celebrating Schoolies at the time of the accident.
