LifeFlight responds to another irukandji sting
The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has now flown seven missions to Fraser Island for jellyfish stings.
The latest case occurred on Tuesday afternoon, when a Brisbane teen was stung while swimming on the western side of the island.
He was initially treated by Queensland Ambulance Service Paramedics before the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter landed at Happy Valley.
The patient was flown to Bundaberg Base Hospital in a stable condition.
This mission marked the seventh RACQ LifeFlight Rescue airlift of a patient stung by a suspected irukandji jellyfish in the past seven days.
