Patient carried over swollen creek

A MAN with a severe leg injury was carried across a swollen creek by a swift water rescue team on a property near Stanwell last night.

An ambulance crew called to treat the man asked for assistance when they found the road to the patient's house cut by flood water at about 8pm.

The specialists from Rockhampton were called and set up a raft on ropes across the creek so the ambos could get to the man who was in pain and required urgent attention.

A Queensland Fire and Rescue Service report said the injury was bandaged and the patient was carried by the ambulance crew back to the raft where they were guided across the creek.

The patient was then to Rockhampton Hospital for further treatment.

A QFRS spokesman said the operation was difficult and conducted in darkness.

The rescue was complete by 10.25pm.
