Surplus funds to land with helicopter service
SEBASTIEN McLachlan's family was keen to give back to the service that helped save the six-year-old's life.
"Sebby" was flown to Royal Brisbane Children's Hospital in the Westpac Lifesaver Helicopter after falling from a second-storey window in April.
To repay the service Sebastien's grandfather Rod Sheather said money left over from fundraising efforts to help Sebby was donated back to the chopper, as well as money raised by auctioning off a Richmond Tigers AFL jersey.
Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service community relations officer Russell Holland said the service was looking for more support.
"It's fantastic when people thank the crews... it gives them and the pilots a real buzz when they get to meet their past patients.
"You can buy a donation gift, so you're donating to the service on their behalf."
