Left foot severed in farming accident

The RACQ CareFlight rescue helicopter was tasked to Esk Hospital Sunday morning to airlift a male in his forties with a severed left foot.

It’s believed the patient had been mixing grain for feed on a property and had his left foot caught by the auger.

The patient was airlifted to the PA Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

RACQ CareFlight Doctor Jacob Crosdale said the patient had a good chance of having his foot reattached.

"We delivered the patient to the emergency department within a good time frame," Dr Crosdale said.

The patient is currently undergoing surgery.
