Baby Kaleb was only 10 days old when he became seriously ill in the midst of rising floodwaters in Biloela. His mum, Lori, took him to the local hospital. But Kaleb was so unwell that he needed intensive care – nearly 150km away.

The roads were cut off, the telephones were down and no ambulance on earth could have made it through the floodwaters that day. Kaleb and his mum Lori were trapped.

A quick-thinking nurse put in an emergency call and within minutes a Flying Doctor aircraft was dispatched to bring Kaleb to the care he so desperately needed. Lori says that if Kaleb was left untreated any longer, it could have been fatal. And that’s why the Flying Doctor is so important—our emergency flights are all that can stand between life and death.
