Man flown from Fraser after falling off boogie-board tow

RACQ CareFlight Rescue's Bundaberg helicopter has flown to Orchid Beach on Fraser Island to airlift a man in his 20s who was injured in an incident involving a four-wheel drive.

The man was on a boogie board and being towed by the vehicle along the beach in shallow water on Thursday afternoon when he fell from the board.

He suffered a suspected fracture to his right leg. 

The man is from Brisbane and was holidaying on the island at the time.

He was flown to Bundaberg Base Hospital in a stable condition for further treatment.

It's the second time in two days the rescue service has flown to Fraser Island.

On Wednesday the helicopter landed on Orchid Beach to airlift a 30-year-old man who cut his foot while fishing.

He was flown to Hervey Bay Hospital in a stable condition.
