Boy airlifted after Segway accident

A 14-YEAR-OLD Brisbane boy was airlifted from Fraser Island's Kingfisher Bay Resort after being injured in a Segway accident.

It is believed the teen was holidaying with family when he fractured his left ankle as a result of the accident.

The Bundaberg RACQ CareFlight Rescue was tasked to fly to the island at 8.30pm on Monday night.

The CareFlight medical team assessed the boy on-site, before taking him to Hervey Bay Hospital in a stable condition.

He was accompanied by his mother for the flight.

The mission marked the end of a particularly busy day for RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopters, with crews from the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Mount Isa, Toowoomba, and Bundaberg flying a combined eight missions.
