Man charged following pursuit – Far North Coast

A man has been charged with driving offences following a police pursuit in the state’s far north.

An eleven-year-old boy fell from Mount Warning near the summit Sunday morning.

Graham Nickisson from the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter service said the boy ‘bounced down the side’ of the mountain around 8 am.

He landed in an area difficult to access so a paramedic onboard the Westpac Helicopter winched him out.

A critical care doctor on board gave the boy emergency treatment. Mr Nickisson said the boy had ‘possible head injuries’.

Ambulance workers then took the child to the Gold Coast University Hospital where he was reportedly in a stable condition.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Listening to the truth tellers

A long time ago my husband had to attend a meeting in Redfern. He works in the health and academic sector and it was a consultation with some First Nations clinicians and community workers. He arrived a little earlier for the meeting to the centre – not your typical clinical setting but a regular house. On arrival he was greeted by an older woman who led him to a table and offered him a cup of tea. They chatted. Had a laugh. She offered him a biscuit.
