Toddler airlifted from Curtis with suspected poisoning

A TWO-year-old girl was airlifted from Curtis Island on Friday with suspected poisoning.

RACQ Capricorn Rescue was called to Cape Capricorn on the island to retrieve the girl, whose family was holidaying there.

The girl was monitored by an on-board flight doctor and intensive care paramedic, and arrived at the Rockhampton Base Hospital in a stable condition.

The rescue service also transported a 36-year-old man from Thangool to Rockhampton on Sunday afternoon.

The man was suffering from suspected spinal injuries after being thrown from a horse.

A six-year-old boy who had fallen two metres from a waterslide was transported from Biloela on the same flight.

Both patients were in a stable condition.
