The Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has performed a double airlift off Fraser Island overnight, the first multi-passenger airlift performed in the 412 Bell helicopter now servicing the region.
Two patients – a man and a woman – were airlifted from Kingfisher Bay Resort on Fraser Island following separate incidents.
A Brisbane woman, aged 71, was airlifted after she suffered a suspected fractured wrist after tripping over a child.
A Logan man, aged 60, was also airlifted after he fainted and suffered suspected head trauma when he fell.
Both patients were airlifted to Hervey Bay Hospital in a stable condition.
