THE Sunshine Coast based AGL Action Rescue Helicopter has airlifted a 20-year-old man to hospital in a serious condition following a freak Christmas Eve incident.

The man and a group of friends had constructed a 15 metre-long makeshift water slide into a creek located on a Murphys Creek property.

At about 10.40pm, the man slid down the slide, skimmed across the creek and hit the bank on the other side.

He suffered severe injuries to his spine and was treated at the scene by paramedics along with the helicopter's flight medical team.

He was later airlifted by the AGL Action Rescue Helicopter to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in a serious condition.
