Townsville Bulletin - - Front Page -

A PALM Is­land boy was air­lifted to Townsville Hospi­tal af­ter his hand caught in a rope on the back of a Sun­fer­ries ves­sel yes­ter­day.

Emer­gency Man­age­ment Queens­land’s res­cue chop­per was sent in af­ter it be­came clear the boy needed ex­tra med­i­cal at­ten­tion to his in­jured hand.

The boy walked off the ferry with am­bu­lance of­fi­cers who ini­tially took him to the Palm Is­land Hospi­tal.

Sun­fer­ries gen­eral man­ager Mark McKeon said a full re­view of the in­ci­dent would be con­ducted to­day.
