Three hospitalised after ‘fumes incident’ on plane at Gold Coast Airport

THREE people have been taken to hospital after they were affected by fumes on a domestic flight which touched down on the Gold Coast.

Queensland Ambulance crews rushed to the Gold Coast Airport just after 6.40pm last night, after receiving reports of the incident on a plane which had arrived from Sydney.

Upon arrival, they treated a woman in her 30s for throat irritation.


She was then taken to Robina Hospital for further treatment.

Two others were assessed by paramedics and were also taken to Robina Hospital for observation.

It’s not known what type of fumes were involved in the incident.

More to come.
