Mount Larcom walker taken to hospital with dislocated knee

RACQ Capricorn Rescue winched an intensive care paramedic and rescue crewman to the Mount Larcom bushwalk yesterday after a 22 year old woman was involved in an accident.

The woman, a local to the area, had descended 250m down the slope when she overbalanced and dislocated her patella.

She was walking with a group of friends when the accident happened. 

She was winched on board the rescue helicopter and taken to Rockhampton where she remained in a stable condition.
