Mundubbera men airlifted
CAREFLIGHT IS ON THE JOB
CAREFLIGHT was kept busy with two rescues in the North Burnett region last week.
On Friday a man in his 50s sustained a suspected fractured leg and fractured arm after falling from a grain truck.
RACQ CareFlight Rescue’s Sunshine Coast-based helicopter was tasked on a hospital transfer to airlift the injured man about 3.30pm.
The CareFlight crew flew to Mundubbera Hospital to retrieve the patient. He was transferred to Nambour Hospital for further treatment.
On Thursday CareFlight’s Bundaberg helicopter was flown to a property at Glenrae, 10km south of Mundubbera, to airlift a man in his 60s who fell from a horse.
The crew landed at the property at noon. He was treated for chest injuries and suspected spinal injuries before being flown to Bundaberg Base Hospital.
