TWO people have been airlifted from Heron Island in the past 24 hours.

RACQ Capricorn Rescue transported 59-year-old American man on Monday night.

It's believed the tourist slipped and fell down the stairwell of a boat after a snorkelling trip, dislocating his shoulder.

He was taken to Rockhampton, arriving shortly after 8pm in a stable condition.

On Tuesday morning the chopper crew transported a 75-year-old New South Wales woman.

She was treated by the on-board doctor and intensive care paramedic for severe abdominal and back pain.

The woman also was flown to Rockhampton in a stable condition.
