Elderly man airlifted to hospital

THIS morning the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Service was called out to an 80-year-old gentleman who suffered cardiac arrest in Yamba.

A Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Service spokesperson said it was likely he was fishing on a rock wall at the time.

They transported him to the Gold Coast University Hospital.

More to come.
