Emotions run high as family shares LifeFlight rescue story

LOUIE Brown was nearly two when a horse kicked him in the face.

The force was so powerful that the imprint of the horseshoe was still seen on little Louie's face three days later.

That was four years ago.

Today, Louie is a happy, healthy country kid who proudly refers to himself as 'The Hulk'.

On Friday night, more than 100 people attended the South Burnett Flight Savers Gala Dinner.

Louie's parents, Emma and Lachlan Brown were the guest speakers and they shared the remarkable story of their little boy's tragic accident.

A packed Nanango Showgrounds Hall listened in amazement to the young family's emotional journey.

The fundraising dinner coincided with the Community Family Fun Day the following day, raising vital funds for RACQ LifeFlight, whose crew helped save Louie's life.

There was not a dry eye in sight when Emma gave a heartfelt thanks to the team at LifeFlight for their professionalism, sensitivity and calming nature.
