Gold Coast motorbike rider crashes on Fraser Island

A GOLD Coast man is recovering in hospital, after crashing his motorbike on Fraser Island on Sunday afternoon.

The Bundaberg based RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter came to the aid of the 25-year-old who had suffered a suspected dislocated shoulder.

The young man was treated at the scene by the intensive care flight paramedic before being airlifted to Hervey Bay Hospital for further tests.
The incident was the third off-road motorbike accident the CareFlight chopper team responded to over the weekend, following two emergency medical transfers at separate motocross parks in Queensland on Saturday.
