The Sunshine Coast RACQ LifeFlight rescue helicopter crew has airlifted three dirt bike riders to hospital in three days.
On Friday afternoon, a buck’s party ended early for the groom, who suffered pelvis and back injuries, after coming off a motorcycle at a designated off-road park in the South Burnett region.
The helicopter pilot landed the aircraft close to the incident and the man, aged in his 20s, was airlifted in a stable condition.
On Saturday, a rider in his 60s, crashed his dirt bike during a failed attempt at a small jump during a party in the Fraser Coast region.
The RACQ LifeFlight rescue helicopter was called into action around 12.30pm, with the pilot landing at a private property to retrieve the patient, who had suffered leg injuries.
Another rider, also in his 60s, suffered an ankle injury after coming off his bike during a group ride with friends in a South Burnett bushland area on Sunday afternoon.
The pilot landed the rescue chopper in a clear area, while the patient was transported to the landing site by Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics.
All three injured riders were airlifted to Sunshine Coast University Hospital for further treatment.
