Girl suffers burns in Lower Portland

A young girl suffered burns to her legs and feet after she stumbled into the remains of a camp fire in Lower Portland yesterday (Sunday).

A CareFlight spokesman said ambulance paramedics alerted CareFlight to the girl’s injuries shortly after 2 pm.

The helicopter landed at the water ski park to find the girl had been running bear-footed in the park and stumbled into the smouldering remains of a camp fire left by another family.

The CareFlight doctor stabilised the seven-dear-old girl from Clovelly then, when paramedics arrived, they took her to where the helicopter landed.

The girl was flown by CareFlight to the  Children’s Hospital at Westmead in a stable condition.
