Woman winched from Table Top Mountain

RACQ CareFlight’s Gold Coast rescue helicopter was tasked to Table Top Mountain Saturday afternoon, just after 2pm where a walker had suffered a leg injury whilst treking up the eastside of the mountain.

Once on scene our crew lowered the medical team of Doctor and Flight Paramedic to the patient. With the assistance of the QAS and the QFRS who were on scene they treated the injured woman for a suspected broken ankle.

The 51 year old female patient from Orange was carefully loaded on to a stretcher and winched with the Doctor into the aircraft and transferred to Toowoomba Base Hospital in a stable condition.
