RACQ NQ Rescue Helicopter chief executive Alex Dorr said a team responded to the incident about 4pm.

“The RACQ NQ Rescue Helicopter was tasked to airlift a 49-year-old male from a remote mine site suffering chest pains and a suspected cardiac condition,” he said.

“The male patient was treated by QAS Critical Care Flight Paramedic and transported back to Mount Isa Hospital in a stable condition.”

This is the second incident this month that has required RACQ NQ Rescue Helicopter to retrieve a patient from a remote mine site for medical reason.

Mr Dorr commended RACQ NQ Rescue Helicopter for being able to respond to critical matters.

“It has been one of those months that it is the Christmas holidays, and we aren’t flying as often which is a good thing as it means people are having a safer Christmas,” he said.
