A 45-year old woman has been hositalised with burns to 20 per cent of her body after a caravan caught fire on the Pacific Highway near Glenugie.
The woman was taken by road ambulance to Grafton Airport, where she was transferred to the rescue helicopter.
At around 2.30 this afternoon the patient was being flown to the Royal Brisbane Hospital.
The helicopter had only just returned to the Lismore Helibase when it received the call, after an earlier assignment to Grafton.
Early this morning the Service was tasked to assist with transporting a 11 year boy to the Coffs Harbour Hospital after he was hit by a motor vehicle.
The nine-year-old Grafton South Primary student was hit by a utility while crossing the road.
Police said he suffered non-life-threatening injuries including head injuries and broken teeth.
He was transferred to Lismore Base Hospital.
