Man airlifted after motocross accident
RACQ LifeFlight crews experienced one of their busiest days in 2017 so far on Saturday, being called to five rescue missions around the state, with one in the South Burnett.
The Bundaberg based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue crew was called to the scene of a motorbike accident at Manar Park, Boondooma, where a man in his 20s suffered a suspected broken ankle.
The man had been riding his motorbike over a jump when he lost control and was thrown over the bike's handlebars, injuring his ankle.
Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics treated the patient before the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was sent to the scene about 11am.
The man suffered no other obvious injuries and was taken in a stable condition to Bundaberg Hospital.
Immediately following the Manar Park rescue, the Bundaberg LifeFlight crew airlifted a woman in her 60s to Brisbane after she suffered from a medical condition.
Other incidents on Saturday included a motorcycle crash in Warwick, a woman being knocked over by a cow near Noosa and another hospital transfer.
On Friday, LifeFlight airlifted a Brisbane man in his 30s from the scene of a parachute accident in Toogoolawah.
The patient suffered suspected spinal and head injuries after a hard landing on both feet.
The man was also suspected to have broken his right femur.
The patient was airlifted in a stable condition to Brisbane.
