Follow the Chopper Rescue team as they face genuine life and death human dramas. This unique observational series looks at the work of the helicopter rescue crews of Outback Queensland.
On Hinchinbrook Island a family's yachting holiday of a lifetime takes a dangerous turn. Meanwhile a drama unfolds mid-air as a motorcyclist with catastrophic injuries has trouble breathing while being flown to Brisbane.
A fatal accident on Fraser Island leaves one tourist dead and seven in need of urgent medical care, and on a remote outback road, a head on collision leaves a man trapped in his car.
A bad accident on an outback cattle property tests everyone on Rescue 521 from Townsville. While on the Great Barrier Reef an English tourist suffers crushing chest pains.
In SW Queensland, the worst flooding in 54 years cuts off homesteads and towns across hundreds of square kilometres. Rescue 500 from Brisbane goes to the aid of a young woman suffering intense chest pain. And inland from Port Douglas Rescue 510 goes to the aid of a 21-year-old man who has fallen ten metres onto his back.
At the EMQ base in Cairns, the crew re-packs the chopper for a winch over water. All they know is that a man has had a diving accident on the Great Barrier Reef. In Ingham, the pressure is on to get to a 45 year old man thought to be in danger of rupturing the major artery leading from his heart.
