Woman hit by 100kg boulder
A WOMAN has been airlifted to Sunshine Coast University Hospital after she was hit by a falling boulder at Booubyjan last night.
The woman, in her 40s, and her sister were climbing a steep hill on a private property at the time of the incident.
An RACQ LifeFlight spokesperson said the sister, who was further ahead up the slope, dislodged a boulder that was estimated to weigh approximately 100kg.
The boulder reportedly knocked the patient off her feet and rolled over the top of her, causing serious injuries.
She was transported by paramedics to a clear area on the property, where the RACQ LifeFlight helicopter landed just after 6.30pm last night.
She was assessed and treated by the LifeFlight critical care doctor, before being airlifted to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, suffering a suspected fracture and possible chest injuries.
Her sister was transported by QAS to Murgon Hospital, with a suspected broken limb.
