Late night rescue mission for the RACQ Capricorn Rescue
Late last night, the RACQ Capricorn Rescue helicopter was called in for a rescue winch from a bulk carrier ship located in Gladstone Harbour.
The on-board Queensland Ambulance Service Flight Paramedic and Rescue Crewman were winched to the vessel to provide immediate medical assistance to a male patient, who was suffering chest pain.
Once stabilised, a stretcher winch recovery was conducted and the patient was transported to Rockhampton Hospital in a stable condition for further treatment.
The RACQ Capricorn Rescue crew used night vision goggles to safely and effectively conduct this winch mission.
