THE Bundaberg RACQ CareFlight Rescue crew came to the aid of a 23-year-old female who was impaled by a tree branch at Norval Park.

The female patient was adjusting a rope attached to a boat moored on the banks of the Kolan River when she slipped about 2pm Monday. 

The patient was impaled through her lower limb by a branch that was sticking out of the river bank.

The rescue helicopter landed 1km from the patient and the medical crew walked to the injured patient where they attended to her injuries in assistance with QAS staff.

The ambulance service then transported the patient to the rescue helicopter in a Queensland Ambulance four-wheel-drive.

The patient was then transported to the Bundaberg Hospital in a stable condition for further treatment.
