Girl, 15, flown to hospital with serious medical condition

A TEENAGE girl has been rushed to a Queensland hospital overnight, suffering a serious medical condition.

The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter was called to Lismore Base Hospital about 7pm.

A 15-year-old patient needed to be transferred from Lismore to Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in Brisbane.

A spokesman from the rescue helicopter could only say the girl was suffering a "serious medical condition".

Lady Cilento is the major specialist children's hospital for families living in Queensland and northern New South Wales.

The hospital provides care to the state's sickest and most critically injured children who need highly specialised care.

More to come.
